THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE FILM
The Voiceless came into fruition following the "We Are Survivors" film produced by Vanessa McNeal and PLVTO Pros. That short featured the stories of eight survivors of sexual violence. Viewers were in disbelief when they saw that one of the subjects in the film was male. They were shocked because we live in a society that doesn't acknowledge that sexual violence happens to men. That disbelief inspired the creation of a documentary solely about men. This film is the first step to changing the culture and conversation surrounding sexual violence and who it happens to.
This documentary is life changing.
