Love, Honour and Disobey

Synopsis
A film about the issues around domestic violence in Britain’s black and ethinic minority communities, through the eyes of the Southall Black Sisters who have been working to combat abuse for more than 25 years. Combines chilling testimony from women who have been abused with analysis of the issues that make domestic violence an even more dificult experience for minority women, who generally wait longer to report abuse and seek help. Also examines the roles of culturally sensitive policing, religious fundamentalism and the attitudes of minority communities themselves in continuing to endanger the lives of many women.
