What Were You Wearing?
sponsored by New York Women In Film & Television
Is a short documentary about victim blaming from the point of view of real sexual assault survivors. It will consist of a fashion show where models will be wearing the recreated outfits that the survivors wore the day of the assault. The fashion show will be intercut with interviews from the real survivors.
The film seeks to deconstruct the widespread misconception that people who have experienced sexual assault are somehow responsible for the assault. By showcasing the multiplicity of outfits that people wore when they were assaulted, I hope to demonstrate in the film that sexual assault is not the result of a victim’s choice of clothing, it is the result of the violent actions of the assaulter.
