The first trailer for the Netflix documentary "Audrey and Daisy" has appeared on the web - a real story about two girls who survived rape and faced many accusations and harassment on the Internet and in real life. The film was directed by Bonnie Cohen and John Schenck and premiered at this year's Sundance Festival.
The stories of Audrey and Daisy, although they happened in different cities, are very similar: they both went to a party, drank too much and were raped by young people they knew. But the nightmare did not end there - the events quickly became public, the girls were accused of lying and victimization. Online threats and insults, which are shown in the tag cloud at the beginning of the trailer, turned into real life and led to irreparable consequences: the house of Daisy's family burned to the ground and her parents decided to leave the city, and Audrey committed suicide after footage of her being raped spread on the internet and at her school.
The filmmakers hope these horrific stories will spark a serious conversation about the culture of violence that victims are blamed for and help make a difference.
Audrey and Daisy will be streaming on Netflix from September 23rd.
