A Suburban Myth (2021)

The  reporting of gender-based violence by the media is, too often,  through a telephoto lens; their focus is narrowed to capture every tiny detail of that one horrific attack. This places it on a platform of its own, allowing it to be held far from the shadow out societal structures would naturally cast onto it, turning it into the tale of one very unlucky woman. A simple case of wrong Place. Wrong time. 

 

A Suburban Myth examines the media's reporting of gender based violence and street harassment by forcing us to widen our line of sight and question the myth of the unlucky woman.
