there is some conjecture weather the video has been doctored,
or a mirror effect introduced to make it look like art work.
question is why would someone doing a serious documentary fake this if it is a fake mirrored picture?
It is in fact a "photoshopped" (mirrored) image that was used in the documentary. I don't know why the makers of the documentary would do that, but
let me show you that it was in fact mirrored by recreating it myself.
Here is the image of the air shaft as shown in the documentary:
and here is another image of that same air shaft (the original the documentary used, but without the photoshopping/mirroring):
Original Image of the Air shaft
Now, here is MY version. I used the original image, then I mirrored the parts of the two sides (twice on each side), and then I cropped the top and
My Photoshopped Image (mirrored twice on each side; cropped top and bottom)
As you can see, my photoshopped image matches (pretty closely) the version of the image used in the documentary.
Going back to speculating on why
the makers of the documentary would have done this:
...Maybe (just maybe) the image of the air shaft was not wide enough to fit their "widescreen" format of the documentary, so maybe they mirrored the
sides to make it wider. But that's just a guess. If that was the reason, I'm not saying it was good idea to do that; mirroring the image just to
make it fit a widescreen can be misleading, as evidenced by this thread.
