That Which Does Not Kill

Show trailer
Both women and men share their stories about sexual abuse in a film, which with simple and intelligent means creates a unique space for reflection.

Ada was 19 years old. He was a person she knew, and she did not resist. Then it happened two more times the same week. Ada's testimony is central to the film, and many can mirror themselves in her trauma. In 'That Which Does Not Kill', the French director Alexe Poukine manages to created a space where a number of different people can talk openly about the consequences of rape: the pain, the personal boundaries, the defence mechanisms or the lack of them. The intimate firsthand accounts are woven together with a gripping and innovative formal language, which adds important nuances to an often misunderstood taboo.
