Your Neighbour's Son

65 min.DK/Documentary

Carrying the subtitle "The Making of A Torturer," this is a drama-documentary based on statements from former Greek EAT/ESA (1972-73) policemen and their torture victims, mixed with fictional reconstructions of the training of EAT/ESA conscripts. The film lays bare a system that makes terror acceptable and which turns human beings, unbeknownst to themselves, into torturer/terrorist robots.

Det Danske Filminstitut registrerer international festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, dog primært de titler, som Filminstituttet varetager i sin festivaldistribution, og primært i forbindelse med de festivaler, som Filminstituttet har prioriteret at samarbejde med. Registreringen af festivaldeltagelse og priser til danske film, der ikke er i festivaldistribution, foretages kun for "launch"-festivaler ifølge Filminstituttets prioriterede festivalliste.
