Love You To Death: A Year Of Domestic Violence

Published on November 1, 2017

A 2014 report by the UN found Hong Kong, Japan, and South Korea were the top ranking countries for female homicides, with females accounting for 53% of the total homicide rates, compared to 21% globally. Of these deaths, 20% are the result of domestic violence, with a woman being killed by her intimate partner or ex-partner every three days in Japan. 1 in 3 wives experience some sort of domestic violence, physical, emotional, financial etc, and 1 in 20 a near-death experience.

TELL is proud to be showing a screening of the BBC documentary  Love You To Death: A Year Of Domestic Violenceby acclaimed director Vanessa Engle. The documentary tells the gripping and untold human stories behind 86 women who were murdered by their partners in Britain in 2013. This film names all 86 women and, through interviews with families, friends and neighbours, tells the stories of seven of them in detail. This documentary is a truly moving and shocking look at how so many people’s lives have been turned upside down by acts of needless violence allegedly committed in the name of love.

We hope you can join us for this screening as we shine a spotlight on issue of domestic violence in Japan and encourage discussion on this important topic.
