Silent Beauty explores my family’s history with child sexual abuse and a culture of silence.
It’s an experimental documentary about the effects of trauma, and the healing and beauty found in the process of coming forward. This film utilizes my family’s super 8 archive, old cassette tape recordings, and interviews that bring forth a rich tapestry of film, sounds, and voices from our past and present.
Silent Beauty is also a project that will document the stories of other survivors, and hold screenings to share the film with youth, community groups, and survivors around the U.S.
