I Am Evidence is a disturbing and powerful documentary, an investigation into the way sexual-assault cases are handled by police departments across the United States.
“All I can tell you is what I remember.” These first spoken words immediately set the tone and gravity of this investigation into historic police mismanagement of sexual assault cases throughout the United States. With the national number of victims each year averaging out to be roughly 1 every 98 seconds, this is, has been, and continues to become a severe criminal and cultural crisis.
I Am Evidence is an earnest call for justice that puts faces to the figures, making the compelling case that a system built to serve and protect, should be better than the criminal it condemns. I Am Evidence gives these women’s stories a platform and this problem a voice. In the face of such a huge oversight of justice, that feels revolutionary.
There will be a panel discussion following the film chaired by Susan McKay and featuring Clare Bailey MLA, Jan Melia and Dr C Quinn, Head of Operations, Rape Crisis England & Wales.
“I Am Evidence” is a searing, lucid film that never shies from tough details, especially when survivors share their attacks in a powerful bearing of witness.Los Angeles Times
