ZED to shop torture doc in Cannes

Clean Torture: An American Fabrication was produced for Arte France

French prodco and distributor ZED is taking three new series to Mipcom, including a documentary that looks at 70 years of torture in the US.

Clean Torture: An American Fabrication (1×52’), produced by Program 33 for Arte France and directed by Auberi Edler, combines archive and contemporary footage and examines the history of torture in the US.

ZED’s slate also includes Gulag: The Story (3×52’), directed by Patrick Rotman and produced by KUIV Productions for Arte France, which looks at what life was like in Soviet prison camps for prisoners and their guards.

Finally, You Will Be Straight! investigates the discredited practice of ‘conversion therapy’ which attempts to ‘cure’ people of their sexuality and make them straight. The doc speaks to victims and activists across the US about the harmful effects of such therapy. It is available in 52- and 70-minute versions and was produced by Tohubohu for France Télévisions.
