Exposure releases latest film about domestic abuse
Exposure is proud to release its latest short film, Behind Closed Doors. Funded by Barnet Council the project forms part of our campaign to raise awareness of domestic abuse.

We worked with young people from Barnet in north London to create this short film as well as an associated magazine exploring what makes a healthy relationship and sharing experiences of what goes on… behind closed doors.

The first time he hit me I looked right at his face. I knew I wasn't imagining things; I saw love in those eyes.

An estimated one in five people experience some form of domestic abuse in childhood and 40% of young people suffer mistreatment in their relationships.

Issue 121 of Exposure magazine, a domestic abuse special, is available to download online.

    From watching this film the way the actors were acting instantly got my attention. Seeing the emotions coming from the actors made me feel speechless. I would say, now I have more of a comprehension of domestic abuse and I think that everyone should watch this film.

    I personally can appreciate this film, as the storyline is clever yet simple, and it covers all the basis of domestic violence. I think the film could make an even bigger impact if it was slightly more in-depth, although I do think the more minimal style works well aesthetically in this film.

    Very good film. Simple but gets across points so well. Statistic use is very good especially alongside choice of song.

    The film was very interesting and made me feel captivated. The characters acted very well and the sound was perfect.
    My advice for everyone never remain silent even if the problem seems to have no solution and don’t be embarrassed in front of situation.
