'Sufferer/Suspect' trailer: How the legal justice system fails victims of assault

The upcoming documentary Sufferer/Suspect follows journalist Rae de Leon as she investigates a disturbing sample throughout sexual assault instances nationwide — survivors who go to the police to report their assaults are sometimes handled as suspects.

In de Leon’s analysis, which incorporates recordings from police interrogations, interviews with victims, and accounts from authorized consultants, we be taught that survivors reporting their assault are generally charged with and even arrested for submitting a false report. Sufferer/Suspect provides a painful look right into a legal justice system that fails its victims and emboldens a hostile atmosphere that threatens those that communicate up. That is the most recent documentary from filmmaker Nancy Schwartzman, whose harrowing investigation Roll Crimson Roll(opens in a brand new tab) was nominated for a Peabody.

Sufferer/Suspect premieres on Netflix Might 23. (opens in a brand new tab)
