Screening Time: TBA
An actress assaulted on a film set during the filming of a sex scene, must choose whether to pursue accusations or complete the film that could start her career.
Quiet on Set dissects the filming and consumption of a sex scene within a film where the lead actress has been violated during the shooting of the scene. Loosely inspired by the many stories that have surfaced during the #MeToo movement, Quiet on Set looks at the lines between performance and reality, consent and assault, violator and complicit witness. It also considers ethics in filmmaking, the response to accusations by victims of assault, conflict of contractual obligations, and distribution and consumption of on screen violation.
