My national insecurity

A film by Patricio Henríquez

Patricio Henriquez (Under the Hood: A Journey to the End of Torture; You Don't Like the Truth: 4 Days Inside Guantanamo; Uyghurs: Prisoners of the Absurd) tells the Kafkaesque story of his friend Victor Regalado.

Having fled El Salvador and its murderous military regime, Victor, a young journalist at the time, arrived in Canada in 1982. He was immediately arrested and issued a security certificate identifying him as a threat to internal security. For fifteen years, a warrant for deportation even hung over his head.
