Good Intentions??

  • Genre: Docu/Drama
  • Runtime: 18 min

Objective:
To create a curriculum that will inform students of the potential missed opportunities and effective strategies to intervene when they suspect abuse.

Approach:
Rather than tell the students what to do we created a video that holds a mirror up to the current attitudes of secondary students towards dating violence in their schools while at the same time a true story of one female student victim unfolds in dramatizations. It\'s not a \'what to do\' but rather a \'who we are\' video for students. It reveals how uninformed they are about the facts of the issue as well as demonstrating the catastrophic results of their inactivity due to peer pressure.
