    Man Unseen

    Whilst more male victims are coming forward with their stories of sexual violence, in public debates, the victim is still almost always described as ‘she’. This sort of tacit understanding of sexual violence focuses most commonly on feminised narratives, making it difficult for boys and men to make sense of their experience. One of these men was Jarle. Jarle - a victim of child sexual violence - now shares his own experience of sexual violence to help other men in similar situations. Through Jarle’s story, Man Unseen is a short documentary about shame, recovery, and escaping the confines of masculinity.
