This film details the death of my childhood friend, who was murdered by her boyfriend at the end of my senior year. I wanted to go in depth on the horror and prevalence of domestic violence, and spread awareness of this serious issue. This video serves as both a memorialization of my friend, and a source of education or realization for the public on what domestic violence really looks like and what is the best way to handle it.
I’m Emily Walker, I’m an incoming junior in Wakefield, Massachusetts. I’ve always been interested in film making and thought this would be a fun project to work on throughout my quarantine.
An Epiphany of Hope:
In my film I wanted to show the unfortunate side of the matter, but bring in the idea that we can’t give up hope. In the beginning there are dark themes to make the actress, McKenna Sweeney, feel claustrophobic and alone, but throughout the film, hints of what’s outside are peppered in showing that no matter how much some situations can fall apart, they can always be put back together

Creating a Connection With Colorado Within Yourself:
My film is pictures that I have token throughout the valley that are all unique in their own way, in the background the music is called “The Sound of Silence” by Paul Simon, which I will be playing on my baby grand piano. I have picked this song because we are sitting in silence right now and because nature is silent, and it is something to appreciate. Together this creates a meaning only for you to discover within yourself.
