Director Statement

Globally, an estimated 736 million women — almost one in three — have been subjected to intimate partner violence, non-partner sexual violence, or both at least once in their life. (This figure does not include sexual harassment.) Fewer than 40 per cent of the women who experience violence seek help of any sort. (Source: unwomen.org)

IN THE DARK wants to make a small contribution to creating awareness of this topic. In complete darkness, the viewer plunges into the trauma of our protagonist Kathleen.
