domestic violence,

social event

In today’s modern society, we are flooded with dozens upon dozens of social issues. From issues like racism to economic downturns, these issues occupy the newspapers and the internet every single day. In order to take a step towards changing, we need to educate the public about these issues. And one of the best ways to do this is to stir up awareness through an impactful video. Therefore, for final Audio-Visual Language project, we have been given the task to choose a social issue and film a story relating to it.

Our group chose to do on the topic of domestic violence, in which a spouse shows violence or aggressive behavior towards their partner. In our video, we wanted to show how it is like for a woman to be in an abusive relationship, how manipulative her spouse can be to keep her in this destructive relationship, and how in the end the woman is able to come to realization of how violent her husband is and call for help from a domestic abuse helpline. We hope this video will inspire many to stand up against domestic abuse and change the public perception that violence against women is supposed to be normal.
