The Premiere of 'Can you see me?' was screened at Hereford's Courtyard Theatre as part of Borderlines Film Festival, and was a great success. 

can-you-see-me-1The film was funded by community retailer The Midcounties Co-operative, and was developed in partnership with national Women’s Aid, West Mercia Women’s Aid and The Rural Media Company. The Borderlines screening was attended by Deputy Police and Crime Commissioner, Barrie Sheldon, who was joined by representatives from local schools, colleges, councillors and practitioners.

Attendees watched the 20 minute film, which captures the essence of what an unhealthy relationship is, and the impact abusive behaviour can have on young people. "It's a very powerful film, yet subtle in how it demonstrates how detrimental traits like controlling behaviour can be," said Katy Dalton, who plays Ellie in the film. "It's so important for young people to be able to access resources like this, in order to prevent them from experiencing abuse and harmful relationships."

As well as the screening being an opportunity to show the film to a wide audience, it was also a celebration of the hard work that had gone into making it happen. "It was fantastic to meet everyone who had been involved in the project," said Katy, "Everyone was really passionate about the film, which was brilliant."
