In this interactive, visceral and impactful first person journey you are transported into Iran’s most notorious prison. As a photojournalist charged with making anti-state propaganda you must answer the questioning of your interrogator and navigate the moral dilemmas that will shape your fate and that of those around you. Blindfold unveils the ever present and continually occurring human rights violations against journalists, the cost of journalistic freedom and forced confessions.
