MEET THE TEAM
WHY ARE WE MAKING THIS FILM?
"When I was 14, construction work started in my middle school to build a new gym. In the meantime, me and the other girls had to change in a temporary building adjacent to the construction site. One day, one of the teachers walked in and told us that the construction workers were peeping at us through the windows, and we had to be careful. That was it.
Back then I was already used to street harassment. 2 years earlier, as I was walking home with my mum, a man had stopped me to ask me out. He didn’t seem to mind that I was only 12.
I was told that I should cover up. That it was my fault for wearing grown up clothes, for having a grown up body at a young age."
Aude Konan - Writer/Director
Written in 2013, Me Too is a short film tackling sexual harassment and abuse of young girls. Members of the team experienced unwanted sexual attention when they were teenagers. It was commonplace to be preyed on by older men. As the Me Too movement has gone viral, countless women have finally had the chance to be heard. However, girls and teenagers are frequently left out of the conversation ... even though their youth does not prevent them from being victims. Our film aims to empower young women and girls and make them realise that they’re not alone.
