An in-depth look at acquaintance rape and its causes in society. In order to understand the high frequency of rape in our society, we must examine our cultural attitudes towards women, female/male relationships and rape itself. This film questions our attitudes and the influences that shape them. Six people from varying backgrounds share their perspectives on this topic, including a survivor of an acquaintance rape, a male college student who nearly raped a good friend, a former model who re-evaluates her career and a social psychologist who recounts recent research on how sexual violence in films affects men and women. USA. Although made some time ago, we feel that this programme contains useful material.
‘This film is of historical interest and reflects the cultural attitudes and language of the time it was made. The imagery and film quality may not be to modern standards.’
