I Am Evidence Screening
What if the evidence to take a rapist off the streets was sitting in a dusty room for years?
The 26th Annual Whitaker St. Louis International Film Festival is bringing a compelling and important documentary, I Am Evidence, to St. Louis.
I am Evidence exposes the alarming number of untested rape kits in the United States through a character–driven narrative, bringing much-needed attention to the disturbing pattern of how the criminal justice system has historically treated sexual assault survivors.
Why is there a rape kit backlog? What can we do to fix the problem? This film explores these questions through survivors’ experiences as they trace the fates of their kits and re-engage in the criminal justice process. I Am Evidence illuminates how the system has impeded justice while also highlighting those who are leading the charge to work through the backlog and pursue long-awaited justice in these cases.
