Coco Fusco: Operation Atropos
Thursday 13 April 2006
at 20.00 hrs
New York-based interdisciplinary artist and writer Coco Fusco will show
her latest film OPERATION ATROPOS at DasArts

        OPERATION ATROPOS is a documentary about interrogation and POW
resistance training. Director Coco Fusco worked with retired US Army
interrogators who subjected her group of women student to immersive
simulations of POW experiences in order to show them what hostile
interrogations can be like and how members of the US military are taught
to resist them. The group of interrogators is called Team Delta, and
they regularly offer intensive courses that they call ³Authentic
Military Experiences² to civilians. The documentary includes interviews
with the interrogators that shed light on how they read personalities,
evaluate an interrogatee¹s reliability, and use the imposition of
physical and mental stress strategically. More fundamentally, however,
the film shows how interrogators rationalize what they do and how they
imagine both themselves and their enemies.
