BLIND TRUST is a documentary about the peacemaking work of Vamik Volkan, a psychoanalyst who has spent a lifetime bringing enemy groups together for dialogue in traumatized regions of the globe. The film recounts his journey in unofficial diplomacy in The Middle East, Estonia, the former Yugoslavia and The Republic of Georgia. Volkan's field work is unparalleled. It has inspired a new vocabulary for understanding large-group identity and the psychology of war.
