"Faces of harassment" is an experiment in storytelling about trauma. Before #MeToo in the United States, there was #MyFirstHarassment, a hashtag which swept across Brazil in 2015. It showed not only the widespread experience of sexual hassament, but a hunger to bring it out of the shadows. The film was shot in a mobile storytelling van, parked in rich and poor neighborhoods alike across São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro and open to any woman. The van was a free, autonomous space, where women spoke to the camera directly, no interviewer or other influence present. "Faces of harassment" offers an unflinching look at the scourge of sexual harassment - and at the radical possibilities for dignity and healing that can happen when women are free to speak their own truth completely for themselves.
