Listen to the news about the Momento fiction project Break the Silence by five Cannes awarded directors. The films bring light to the increasing worldwide demand of sexual child violence.
The director Anahita Ghazvinizadeh says her film is about the memories of a abused child and Frida Kempff answers why she first said no to participating in the project. Producer David Herdies stress the importance of creative artistic films for everyone to understand the seriousness of the problem.
