The people behind the film

This film was co-created by the protagonist, Cristina and her friends and fellow students Director: Alzira Guitsa, Camera, Melva Ungwana and Odette Mulungu, Sound, Lourdes Rubaine and Editing Lizete Minosa who researchched and produced the film, giving Cristina space to tell the story in her own words, and listening where others haven't. Where words failed Cristina, she turned to her own corporal language, to share her own story of sexual violence, resilience  and the power of music and dance to heal wounds and find victory over her aggressors.
