Interactive 2016


Through architectural and acoustic modeling, co-creators Amnesty International and Forensic Architecture provide an unprecedented look deep within an infamous torture prison in northern Syria. Saydnaya: Inside a Syrian Torture Prison recreates the interior of the prison from memories of past detainees, despite the sensory deprivation experienced within, using 3-D modeling and 360-viewing combined with personal interviews and audio recordings. With background information on the prison and more broadly, detention in Syria, this interactive documentary serves as a call to action and engages the public to work toward ending such brutal human rights abuses.
