Synopsis

About SSFS: Studio Movie Grill hosts Shared Stories Film Series, films dedicated to educate, enlighten and inspire. This series showcases filmmakers and non-profits raising awareness of issues impacting women through film, guest speakers, workshops, and panel discussions. Many of our films will have proceeds donated to the non-profit co-presenting.

About UNSLUT: In 2013, seventeen-year-old Rehtaeh Parsons took her own life. The Halifax teenager had been raped a year and a half earlier by her classmates and labeled a "slut" as a result. Despite transferring schools many times, she could not escape constant cyber harassment and in-person bullying. Rehtaeh's is not the only story like this to make headlines in recent years. Why is the sexual shaming of girls and women, especially sexual assault victims, still so prevalent in the United States and Canada? This documentary features conversations with those who have experienced sexual shaming, including the family and friends of Rehtaeh Parsons. Filmmakers also spoke with Samantha Gailey Geimer, who was publicly shamed by the media after being sexually assaulted by director Roman Polanski at the age of thirteen in 1977; Gina Tron, who wrote about her experience being shamed out of pursuing charges against a serial rapist in Brooklyn, New York; N'Jaila Rhee, who coped with her sexual assault and the subsequent loss of support from her family and church by reclaiming her sexuality as a "cam girl"; and Allyson Pereira, who was ostracized in her New Jersey town after texting a photo of her breasts to an ex-boyfriend. Through interviews with sexuality experts, advocates, and media figures, the film explores the causes and manifestations of sexual shaming in North America and offers immediate and long-term goals for personal, local, and institutional solutions.
