When she was 18 years old Linda Steinhoff was raped by someone she knew. In the documentary RAPED, she examines various aspects of rape, such as how rape victims are met by the system put in place to help them and how this system itself can be seen as yet another abuser. Is it possible to avoid defining yourself as a victim? Can life go on like before? Should you press charges or not? Through interviews with a convicted rapist, a victim, a psychiatrist, a lawyer, her boyfriend and some good helpers, Steinhoff makes the case that the first step towards a more sensible approach to the question of rape is learning to talk about it.
Linda Steinhoff ( Norway, 1979) RAPED is Steinhoff's debut as feature documentary director.
