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.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion, chaired by Susan McKay and featuring Clare Bailey.
