Against the ever-shifting backdrop of global politics, a hard-hitting work on the trauma experienced by former Palestinian detainees held as enemies of the state of Israel. Best doc winner at the last Berlinale, this unsettling film uses a generic warehouse space to recreate the notorious Israeli interrogation centre where thousands of Palestinians considered potentially harmful to the Jewish state were incarcerated.
