“Second Assault When Jillian was 18 years old, she was raped in her college dorm room. Twelve years later Second Assault follows her on the journey to confront this incident and in particular, her anger toward the police officer who deemed the assault consensual. This film explores the trauma of reporting sexual violence, and the “second assault” that survivors often experience when they are not believed. DIRECTED BY Jillian Corsie & Amy Rosner, 2018, USA, 19 mins.”
Carolyn’s note: This rape in “Second Assault” allegedly occurred here at University of AZ Coronado Residence dorm, so this movie has a Tucson connection. 8 other short films as part of this showcase.
