About this submission

I believe that some stories that womxn choose not to tell — need to be heard nonetheless.
In the USA alone, 63% of sexual assaults are reported; only 1% of reported assaults result in a conviction, yet 20% of American womxn, a real silent majority, admit to surviving rape. Following my own experience with sexual violence I present a quiet, yet intimate story reflecting the perspective of a heroine who doesn’t confront sexual assault heads-on. In this way my film hopes to explore how omission, the easiest way for womxn hoping to regain normalcy, is in itself a nonviolent trauma.
