A video adaptation of a dance/theater work based on stories told by six survivors of child sexual abuse.
1999 • 45 minutes • English
The survivors shared their experiences over a twelve week period within a traditional psychotherapy framework and saw their experiences expressed in movement by professional dancers. The stories were then incorporated into a script and combined with dance performance, photography, painting, and music. Walking Miracles explores the intense emotional experiences and hard-won self-knowledge that the survivors shared, strips away the silence and secrecy of abuse, and makes known its enduring aftereffects. It serves as an audiovisual catalyst for healing and for greater understanding of this important human rights issue. Viewer’s Guide included.
WARNING: Walking Miracles is not intended for children and contains explicit descriptions of child sexual abuse.
