Behind Closed Doors (2016, directed by Anna Hall)

[No. 41 of 52 in #52FilmsByWomen]

This is a documentary that follows three women in England through their cases of domestic abuse by their partners. Unlike many other documentaries and news reports, these women have agreed to revealed their names and faces. This perhaps conveyed the true weight of domestic abuse as their faces swollen and disfigured faces after being beaten by their partners were shown.

They talk openly about their experiences living with abusive partners, and we can see how emotionally complicated their lives become.
