That Which Does Not Kill. Courageous survivors of abuse
Premiered at the prestigious International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, this documentary presents a network of faces and their testimonies after experiencing sexual abuse.
Tough, courageous, uncomfortable, the stories we hear invite us to put ourselves in the shoes of the victims for a moment in our lives. Their testimonies speak of a universal pain with which we can all identify.
The film camera lends its transparency and its power of etherization to serve as therapy for those who are in front of it and for us, who receive from them a learning experience of admirable courage.
