Serge, Musa, Kebi and Hector are four very different men from far-flung corners of the world. But they share one thing in common – they were subjected to torture in their own countries. As a result, they have experienced psychological difficulties that often are further exacerbated by life’s complications. After Life – 4 Stories of Torture by Finnish director Mervi Junkkonen delves into the trauma of those who endured physical and mental torture. From various points of view, the camera reveals the vulnerability in the faces of the men who continue to suffer. This visually interesting film was shot in Finland, where the protagonists wound up after escaping their homelands. Another story playing out in the background draws attention to the fact that although Finland once was a place where refugees were welcome, no longer is that the case.
