Ghosts : A portrait of life after torture

Three Arab-Canadian men are detained and tortured for months and years in Syria and Egypt. Upon their release they return to Canada struggling to find some answers as to why they were detained and tortured. An internal inquiry into their cases, the Iacobucci Inquiry, reveals that the Canadian government was complicit in their detention and torture. In the film Ghosts, produced by Rams Media and directed by Morvary Samare, the camera team follows the lives and cases of the men for a year and a half as they fight to leave the horror of torture behind them.

The film has just been awarded the "Prix du Public" at the Montreal Human Rights Film Festival 2010, where it had its world premiere. 

The IRCT contributed to the initial phases of the production process of the documentary film which is a powerful and intimate documentary about the fragile balance between democracy, human rights and national security fears. It is also a portrait of life after torture experiences.
