According to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence 1 in 3 women experience intimate partner physical violence, intimate partner sexual violence, and/or intimate partner stalking in their lifetime. 

Our robust collection of films  is an invaluable resource for addressing this important issue, and for facilitating discussion and training towards ending all forms of violence against women.

Filmmaker Attiya Khan was 16 when she dated Steve. Two decades later, here they are again, not to reminisce but to process. In a powerful act of restorative justice, they've come together to talk through their violent relationship. What drove Steve to abuse Attiya daily during the years they were together? Illuminating a new paradigm for domestic-violence prevention, A BETTER MAN, offers a fresh and nuanced look at the healing and revelation that can happen for everyone involved when men take responsibility for their abuse.

Every day, 5 million children in the U.S. experience domestic violence, either as witnesses or victims. Due to a horrific system that favors abusive fathers, a shocking number of mothers who seek to protect their children (and themselves) end up losing them. Most Americans are unaware that an abusive father, who contests custody from a protective mother, will win 70 percent of the time. Directed by Rachel MeyrickWHAT DOESN'T KILL ME is a bold and provocative film is a long overdue exploration into why the most powerful country in the world is not protecting its most vulnerable mothers and children and thus enabling generations of abusers to continue their abuse.
