“This video was made during lockdown and finished on 25th April 2020. It is a reflection about domestic violence, human rights and woman condition in all countries. I was inspired by a personal involvement, an old friend I met by chance after a long time told me the abuse she was victim of from her husband. She thought it was painful but she accepted it as a normal condition. I was shocked but I couldn’t help her a part telling her she needed to contact the police. I couldn’t reach her anymore because she moved to another city. I thought about this short talk a long time. I really think this is the situation of many women. This is something that needs to be changed.”
