#MeToo Our Story

A documentary about sexual abuse

About the project

Welcome to #MeToo Our story documentary.

When I first heard about twin sisters Nicole and Johanne, I was immediately drawn to their story. I knew I wanted to direct and produce a film about these brave women. They offered me a chilling testimony of the sexual abuse they suffered during their childhood, and the underlying impact on their lives ever since.

We decided then to make a documentary based on interviews. And we did. But now comes the hard part. The postproduction. And in order to make a professional product we need your help. We need to pay for the editing, sound mixing, music, color, design of the graphics and cover. On top of that we want to spread the word and send it to many festivals. So we can encourage as many people as we can to stop sexual abuse. And film festivals have a fee.

But let's talk about the film that we want to release:

Synopsis of the film:

Nicole and Johanne are preparing for the Montreal twins parade, an annual celebration that is very significant for them and their story, especially this year with the rise of the #MeToo movement.

While they prepare their costumes they begin to talk about their mother and a time in the 60s, when a young woman becomes pregnant by accident and decides give up for welfare her twin daughters. After four years hopping from one foster family to another, the twins are are claimed again by their mother, and the girls are happy to return.


The mother is unemployed and lives scarce life, so when she meets a new boyfriend, Roger, he is able to offer them economic stability and a life the twins could only dream of. However, everything seems to come with a price and a story of sexual abuse and secrecy begins for which the ramifications will still be visible 40 years later.

WHEN

We will have the movie ready for Spring 2019 and we want you to come to the screening that we are organizing for MAY2019 in Cinema du Parc.

WHY NOW?

"#meToo is global community of survivors. It´s a mechanism for action, for empowerment through action"

Civil rights activist Tarana Burke

 #MeToo spread virally in October 2017 as a hashtag used on social media in an attempt to demonstrate the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, especially in the workplace. Since then a lot of progress has been done for women. But this is just the start, we need to keep fighting to reach the same rights for women and men.

We need like-minded people who believe that sexual abuse has to stop as strongly as we do to help spread the word —
