#9187 Xiomara Fuentes, Amandeep Kaur, and Nneka – three wives beaten and humiliated by their husbands – are the subjects of Let’s Talk About It, which gives a voice and a face to a spreading epidemic of spousal abuse. This program puts video cameras into the hands of these women’s children who then interview their mothers about why they endured – and how they survived – such physical and emotional injury.
The questions they ask, framed with a poignant blend of candor and naiveté, leave no room for equivocation. A compelling and purposeful call to action produced by acclaimed filmmaker Deepa Mehta, this film is a journey into the secret and dangerous world of domestic violence, no more powerfully illustrated than through the eyes of the children.
