Film

100 Women I Know, is a short documentary film, based on 100 responses to a questionnaire about rape and sexual assault.

 

The film is comprised of interviews with four young women and the insight into these brave women’s experiences is powerful, eye-opening and thought provoking. With this film we aim to initiate more open conversations about rape, and confront the taboo that surrounds it, as it is this taboo that stops rape survivors from sharing.

 

This film will seek to remind the audience that these contributors are relatable women with unique and individual personalities – not only victims of rape. From hearing these women’s stories, and their reflections on their experiences, 100 Women I Know encourages you to consider the (often unshared) stories of the women you know.

 

 

Director’s statement 

 

I was inspired and driven to make this film because of my own experiences, I wanted to feel less alone. In the process of making this film, I have found my voice and in turn hope to encourage other women to find theirs too. Rape is so often internalised and kept secret; sharing is so important and empowering. The medium of film can be an invaluable tool for change and I have witnessed the chain reaction effect of women sharing. I hope that this film will help strengthen solidarity with all survivors and be a small catalyst for change towards what is such a huge and pressing issue. - Phoebe Montague
