zero dB [against music torture]

Filmed inside Cambridge University’s anechoic chamber (designed to create total silence) and featuring former Guantanamo Bay detainee, Ruhal Ahmed, this short by Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin’s new film for Massive Attack’s “Saturday Comes Slow”. (also check interview with Adam Broomberg & Oliver Chanarin talking about this project in Dazed & Confused ) is a reflection on Ahmed’s experiences whilst in detention (particularly how he was interrogated using high-volume music) and about the use of human sound on the body. — via
