Private Violence (Promo)

November 18, 2016 - Posted in Reel South by Cynthia Hill

With at least four women murdered each day by abusive (and often, ex) partners, a woman in America is most in danger in her own home. Witness the complex realities of intimate partner violence through the eyes of two survivors: Deanna Walters, a mother seeking justice for her estranged husband’s crimes against her, and victims’ advocate Kit Gruelle. Executive produced by Gloria Steinem. (60 min.)

A collaboration between UNC-TV and SCETV, and the Southern Documentary Fund (SDF), REEL SOUTH includes half-hour and hour-long independent, documentary films about the American South. The six acclaimed films of the pilot season have recently premiered at film festivals and theaters, building buzz and audiences. REEL SOUTH now brings these films to a national audience hungry for authentic stories from one of the most unique corners of America.
