This film explores those elements in our society which contribute to the ideology that supports rape. It attempts to expand our society’s narrow and sexist concept of rape and establishes the connections between violence and “normal” patterns of male-female behaviour. Includes the opinions of convicted rapists, rape crisis centre workers, and others associated with the problem.
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 As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions.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.
