I Am Evidence
Part of Must Watch – White Ribbon Day Special
Saturday November 24 at 9.30pm AEDT
I AM EVIDENCE tells the story of four survivors whose rape kits went untested for years, following them as they navigate their way through the criminal justice system and learn that so often, the system is broken. The film reveals the historic nature of the way sexual assaults are treated in America, and the positive effects that occur when perpetrators are held accountable and survivors are given an opportunity for healing and justice. I AM EVIDENCE has won the audience award for Best Documentary Film at both the Provincetown and Traverse City Film Festivals.
Produced by Mariska Hargitay and directed by Trish Adlesic and Geeta Gandbhir, this film exposes the alarming trend of rape cases that go unsolved through the stories of four resilient women in Detroit, Cleveland and Los Angeles as they trace the fates of their kits and re-engage in the criminal justice process.
