Description: Private Violence is a documentary that explores a simple, yet deeply disturbing fact of American life: the most dangerous place for a woman in American is in her own home. Everyday in the U.S., at least 4 women are murdered by an abusive intimate partner or ex-partner. This documentary shifts the focus of the issue from those who are abused to those who abuse. Furthermore, it will address how we, as a community, can build a future without domestic violence.
