Los Angeles, CA, February 11, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Scars Unseen is a documentary series about the triumph of the human spirit, following six men and women who have overcome domestic violence.
Scars Unseen aims to illuminate the power of healing, de-stigmatize victimhood, and encourage open communication about the causes, treatment, and prevention of domestic abuse.
In each episode of this six-part series, one of the subjects recounts their experience involving domestic violence, focusing on what it took for them to overcome and focus their life on activism and advocacy. Whether they were formerly abused or if they formerly abused another person, this project seeks who or what allowed them to see a better life for themselves. In addition, Scars Unseen will include interviews with subject professionals: medical, psychological, legal, and social professionals.
