I AM EVIDENCE

  • Release Year: 2017
  • Runtime: 89 minutes
  • Directed By: Geeta Gandbhir and Trish Adlesic
  • Country: USA
Every year in cities around the United States, it is estimated that hundreds of thousands of rape kits are left untested in police storage facilities. Produced by Mariska Hargitay, I AM EVIDENCE exposes this shocking reality, bringing attention to the way in which police have historically processed sexual assault cases. Through an exploration of survivors’ accounts, the film sheds light on these disturbing statistics, and shows what can be achieved when evidence—and the individuals it represents—are treated with the respect we all deserve. |Read More
