No myth

Australia, 1987

Film
A still image from No myth

This video exposes the entrenched attitudes and myths surrounding Australia’s most hidden crime: domestic violence. “No Myth” was produced to explain why secrecy, shame and misplaced guilt accompanies domestic violence, and why women who experience it are frequently too scared, ashamed and isolated to confide in anyone.
