Humanscape – Screening at Rapid Response Unit
A short film about forced marriage and honour-based violence from a perspective of a survivor, followed by a panel discussion and interactive dialogue. This is an event where art and social issues will collide to provide interactive dialogue.
“When I am looking down at the Liverpool landscape through the drone I look at the Liverpool landscape. But I want you to look again – to look at the humanscape. Our love, our hate, our pain and our joy; they shape where we live, whether we know it or not.
We are a kaleidoscope of human experiences, messy, colliding in and out of each other’s lives, intertwined but yet separate. Do we know or care that forced marriage or female genital mutilation takes place in our communities? Do we speak up for those who do not have a voice? Do we remember the victims? Do we stand up for them? I want you to ask questions these questions, I want you to understand.
It is only through lighting the darkness and speaking of the unspoken can we raise awareness and do better for our communities. Let’s build bridges and tear down walls.”
