Broken

A young man confesses to his girlfriend that he has been sexually abused by a girl.

Drama, 9 minutes, Scotland

Since cinema is such a powerful tool with the potential of reaching large audiences, I felt an obligation to tell people about the problem of male rape, a form of sexual abuse which is still surrounded by myths and taboos. I made this movie because I wanted to tackle these misconceptions, and to raise awareness about it.
