This is a short film I made about domestic violence. I haven’t experienced violence of this kind, so I can’t speak from firsthand experience. I do, however, know a few people who have gone through such an ordeal—their mother and father presenting themselves as kind, respectful human beings to the public but at home they are horrible and violent. The people I know who have managed to get out of these violent homes are now safe and strong, taking care of themselves. They went through years of hiding from the outside world but are now free. To those friends—I think you are strong, beautiful people, and I’m so happy you made it through everything. ♦
