Brazil. Women, 15 to 84, rich and poor, offer testimonies of harassment, sometimes for the first time.

On Women’s Week, a studio-van in São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro provides space for women to share testimonies to a camera without an interviewer. One hundred and forty women share stories: of strangers catcalling in streets, buses and subways, and of rapes committed by relatives. As part of a transmedia project, the film is a reflection of its own process: how did the women feel telling their stories? Witness moments of release, intimacy and sometimes the telling of these stories for the first time.
