Domestic abuse. How aware are we? How would you feel hearing the stories of the victims? Are we aware that both men and women are victims of domestic abuse? More importantly, should we see them as victims?
This is one of two compelling and stark video pieces in the hopes of increasing awareness. This body of work conveys the vulnerability and strength from the point of view of men who suffered from and work to overcome years of domestic abuse.
These open and honest stories pose a debate about domestic abuse and stereotypical roles by exploring each individual’s experience. It gives the viewer insight into the sensitive nature of the subject and the dignity of the men involved.
If you are a male victim of domestic abuse, please call the ManKind Initiative on 01822 334244 or visit mankind.org.uk
