#16027/0635  RAPE: THE AFTERMATH
Rape is unlike any other crime. Often there are only two people present and if one person says it was rape and the other says it was consensual, it’s one person’s word against another. But even if the police believe there has been a crime, there needs to be sufficient evidence to present to the Crown for consideration. Intimate in style, this observational documentary follows several women as they deal with the aftermath of an alleged rape. Compelling testimony from victims, medical staff, the Police and members of the legal profession support the actuality of victims’ journeys as they seek justice or attempt to move forward with their lives. Viewer discretion is advised. *CC
