I screened my film to an audience of more than forty people, including representatives from a local council, youth service, rape crisis centre and domestic abuse service. Other survivors of abuse were also there.
The feedback I received was overwhelmingly positive and included the following comments:
Councillor Keith Owen, Exeter City Council: ‘It was very moving and thought-provoking.’
Lisa Rutter, Team Leader at Devon Youth Service: ‘Inspirational, honest and educational. I would welcome a copy of the film to show in youth centres.’
A trainee teacher: ‘Such a brave person and an incredible thing to do. You are an inspiration and keep speaking out. As a trainee teacher I think more people should hear about the issues you have covered at a young age. Thank you, and keep going.’
Anonymous: ‘Tonight was a really eye-opening experience for me and I feel I have gone away with a better understanding of the recovery process. The whole thing was very moving. Becki is incredibly brave to speak out as she has and is an inspiration to others that are struggling. I feel privileged to have been here tonight.’
