A new short film has been released to highlight the scourge of Gender Based Violence in South Africa and to urge everyone in the country to help end it.
Anant Singh and Videovision Entertainment produced the awareness film which includes elements from other films they have produced in order to highlight the issue.
“We are all accomplices if we do not speak out against any injustice faced by society, and I have used the medium of film to reinforce this. Today, we are faced with the grave problem violence, especially Gender-Based Violence. It is up to each one of us to do something to help victims; raise awareness and find solutions. Our film is designed to provoke thought and elicit a reaction from people to act against violence, especially violence against women and children.”
During the launch, the Executive Director of UN Women Dr Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka stated, “Every crisis has an opportunity. This crisis offers an opportunity to further entrench the fight against gender-based violence and build digital infrastructure for all, starting with the poorest and closing the gender digital gap.”
