REVIEWS

Waves

SCARS UNSEEN is an evocative portrayal of human resilience and the urgent need for societal change. It advocates for a knowledgeable and proactive stance against domestic violence, emphasizing the transformative power of storytelling in cultivating empathy and initiating action.

Waves

I think this film’s goal is not only to raise awareness but also to inspire. To come out and share our own scars unseen.

My rating is a beautiful 10 out of 10 stars.

Waves

There was no pushing, only support and love, coming from the people on the other side of the cameras and other equipment. That’s what you get from womxn who are really listening. It’s evident that the space was created, offered, and gladly given to these survivors. Major props to director Meredith Yinger for setting up that space.
