Memories of the past three years have been stitched together with a heavy hand. In a disorientating repetitive cycle, the piece relives tiny details, grappling to find moments of peace and stillness amidst spiralling thoughts.
It’s a heavy reality to know that 1 in 4 women in the UK will experience sexual violence at some point in their lives. Roughly 850,000 women a year*. This film is a gentle reminder of the power and influence trauma can have on our lives, and the strength needed to heal.
Fear for staying silent, fear for speaking up
Fear of staying
Fear of walking away
Fear of never being able to move past the past
The past becoming the present being the future
How the future was on fire, too dangerous to dream about
