Event description
A new documentary about violence against women and girls in South London, challenging common beliefs and responses to sexual violence today.

About this event

'People don't want to believe' is a new documentary produced by the Yellow box theatre.

The film looks at the culture around sexual violence, women and girls here in South London. We explore the distinction of experiences of survivors across communities, open new conversations about what change could look like and challenge our audience to reflect on our societal and cultural responses to sexual violence.

'People Don't Want To Believe is an incredibly powerful documentary, which sparks important, overdue conversations. It's honest and doesn't sugar-coat or censor the experiences and issues women, girls and men face. Though it's set in Lambeth, the topics and themes explored are applicable all over the UK.' Megan Lawton, BBC Newsbeat journalist.

'Poignant, interesting, cleverly shot and edited [...] the perfect starting point for helpful and healing conversations.' Jenny Holden, member of the community.

'A powerful film about the prevalence of sexual violence, its impact and the barriers faced by victims and survivors' Rose Parker, Violence Against Women and Girls lead for Lambeth Council.

The Yellow box theatre is a Brixton-based not-for-profit organisation, specialised in contemporary performing arts, advocacy and community engagement. Our activities are primarily supported by individuals' donations, please support us and make a donation, it really makes such a difference to us.

*This film is rated 18 due to its content on sexual violence.'
