Australian Army produces short film about domestic violence

March 24, 2017

Silence Breeds Violence.

“Silence is the Accomplice” is a short film produced by the #AustralianArmy that tells the stories of four of its members: four very brave serving soldiers and their experiences with family and domestic violence.

Their accounts are confronting, and deeply personal. The people in the film are not actors—they are people from our Army, our community. They are people we know and care about, and these are their very real experiences.

By showing this film, Army hopes to start a meaningful conversation on the topic of family and domestic violence. It is time to eradicate this behaviour from Army, and from the community as a whole.

Too often it happens behind closed doors and is never spoken about or reported. Too often victims are too ashamed or fearful to come forward.

This must change!
