I just received my copy of the DVD yesterday & watched the entire documentary last night. It's very well made and edifying. A big surprise is that two of the survivors had experiences similar to mine (violent rape) and the North Carolina psychologist even remembered a pillow in his face, same as me. We all know there are thousands of silent survivors out there with stories like ours, but there's a sense in which it's good to actually hear that the abuse was "nothing personal," it was about the perpetrators, not about us. And I enjoyed the upbeat attitude and constructive activism of the New Jersey survivor.
