Director and writer Natalie Pattillo has been making films, writing, and reporting on gender-based violence, liberation, and activism for nearly a decade, covering stories about survivors of abuse who are criminalized for their acts of survival. She speaks with audiences about the nuances of intimate partner and family violence and how systems can fail survivors of abuse; what communities can do to support survivors before, during, and after crisis; why survivors of abuse shouldn't be treated as a monolith or why there is no "perfect victim"; breaking the harmful cycles of generational trauma; and what healing justice can look like for those impacted by family violence; and the importance of trauma-informed filmmaking and storytelling.
