What has been integral to your personal healing?
Turning this tragedy into a means for activism has been the anchor of my on-going healing process. To restore the sense of personal agency over my life and story that, by principle, I was robbed of as a child has been invaluable.
How has seeing the support of the other survivors affected you?
The power of connecting as a survivor is potent and, in my case, life-changing. Exchanging some of the most vulnerable moments of your life with someone who understands them, uniquely, is one of the most intimate and humbling experiences that I have been privileged enough to have.
What do you hope viewers take away from the film?
I hope that this film offers viewers the opportunity to open their hearts to survivors, to understand the dynamics of power and trauma and recovery, and then incorporate this new-found empathy into their everyday lives.
