RCC Presents, I Am Evidence
Rape Crisis Center presents a compelling HBO documentary, I Am Evidence.
I Am Evidence, produced by actor, director, and Joyful Heart Foundation Founder and President, Mariska Hargitay, exposes the alarming number of untested rape kits in the United States, bringing much-needed attention to the disturbing pattern of how the criminal justice system has historically treated sexual assault survivors.
I AM EVIDENCE tells the story of four survivors whose rape kits went untested for years, following them as they navigate their way through the criminal justice system and learn that so often, the system is broken. The film reveals the historic nature of the way we treat the crime of sexual assault in this country, and the positive effects that occur when perpetrators are held accountable and survivors are given an opportunity for healing and justice. I AM EVIDENCE has won the audience award for Best Documentary Film at both the Provincetown and Traverse City Film Festivals.
