You are warmly invited to attend our next film evening on Friday 30 September, Rewind (run time 1h26m). This is a documentary which vividly demonstrates the effect of intergenerational trauma, written and directed by Sasha Neulinger, a survivor of sexual abuse during his childhood. This remarkable documentary, made by Neulinger himself, has one riveted from beginning to end. It is put together from actual childhood video footage, in which clues to the abuse can be found in hidden corners, or affection between uncles and the boy has a sinister undertone. Thirty-year-old Neulinger is a remarkable young man, who, at the age of 7, stood up to his abuser when his sister also became a target. This took him on a grueling journey through many years of therapy and court cases, to finally getting the truth acknowledged. This documentary could offer real help to children who are struggling with sexual abuse, as well as to survivors of sexual abuse and their families. There are straightforward, honest interviews with all Neulinger’s family members, his psychiatrist and his lawyers, giving an insider view of the impact of sexual abuse on the victim, and the harrowing process for the victim, of prosecution of the perpetrators. A truly inspiring documentary, shining a light of hope on a very dark matter.
Trigger warning: We advise audience discretion, since the subject matter could be disturbing, triggering physical and mental reactions, including emotional distress in some sensitive viewers.
