The Girl Who Cannot Speak by Laura Pellegrini & Stefano Da Frè | Canada | 2018 | 20′ | *Out of Competition* | Edited by Emmy Award Winner Krysia Carter-Giez, ‘The Girl Who Cannot Speak’ follows five women’s true stories of sexual abuse. This project began by meeting with women from all different backgrounds, ages, and walks of life. Each woman has been involved with the Lenox Hill Women’s Shelter in New York city. As the project moves forward we meet Charlotte, a 13 year old girl whose story is depicted through visual images. She never speaks. Charlotte’s image is a metaphor of innocence that ties all the women’s unique stories together.
