Museum of Rape Threats

Amidst the framed horrors, three delicate pieces of cloth emerge as powerful
allegories, weaving together the collective consciousness of affected women
communities. These threads represent the interwoven narratives of countless
women, whose voices have been stifled by the burdens they bear in the face of
relentless harassment.
As the camera delves deeper, we witness a community that rallies around the
scholar, offering support and solidarity. With echoes of the Guerrilla Girls and
the me too movement, this collective endeavors to break the chains of silence
that bind women in virtual spaces.
The museum becomes a cathartic haven, an emotional redemption for those
who have suffered in silence.
"Museum of Rape Threats" is a thought-provoking documentary that dares to
open a Pandora's box, exposing the raw wounds of online harassment endured
by women. Through the metaphor of a museum, the film urges us to confront
our collective responsibility in eradicating this pervasive culture, allowing the
voices of survivors to echo loudly and unapologetically.

Director Statement

As the director, my intention is to shed light on this grave issue, which has
insidiously infiltrated our social media platforms without our consent. We want
to challenge the prevailing narrative and bring to the forefront the voices that
have been silenced for too long.
The documentary's narrative unfolds over a span of two years, capturing the
painstaking process of setting up the museum.
Furthermore, "Museum of Rape Threats" goes beyond documenting the journey
of a curator. We also explore the collective experiences of women who have
encountered online sexual threats and harassment. Through interviews and
personal stories, we hope to foster empathy and understanding, encouraging a
dialogue that will drive change.
In this film, we aim to create an immersive experience for our audience,
capturing the essence of Isha's emotional journey through evocative visuals
and poignant storytelling. We hope to inspire empathy and ignite a call to action
against the rampant sexism and misogyny that plague our digital spaces.
"Museum of Rape Threats" a plea for a safer and more inclusive online world,
where individuals can express themselves without fear of dehumanization.
