Examines rape from the rapist’s point of view. Interviews with convicted rapists in penitentiaries and psychiatric hospitals are combined with analysis by experts in the legal and law enforcement professions. Two groups of rapists are represented; those who knew their victims and those who did not. They discuss their feelings and motivations at the time of committing the offences. A victim of rape talks of her struggle against her assailants and the role played in this issue by the advertising and media industries.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
