Where Were You?

(¿Dónde estabas tú?)

Domestic violence often remains hidden behind closed doors. Not even those nearest know what happens behind them. Three strong women decide to break through the barrier and talk about their experiences.

This animated documentary shows three real stories from three different continents. A Filipino university student describes her husband’s mental and later physical abuse, a Spanish baker shows the fractures caused by her partner during an argument, and a worker from a Mozambique textile factory had to leave her own children to escape her violent husband. Domestic violence is not isolated to any single continent or social class, but can affect any of us. This film sensitively captures the honest confessions of the protagonists, who decided to speak out and motivate other women to not tolerate domestic violence.
