To raise awareness and as a call to action to report these cases, we created a film, using voices as main part of the film music. Repetition and loops in the music and the images hint at a cycle of violence that is hard to escape from and often needs the help from the outside world.
The singers of the German Choir of London met online with experts in DV to learn about their work and the scope of the problems. They then established words and phrases they would like to say to the victims and recorded Alexandra Hamilton-Ayres's music at home. The separate parts were then edited into a choral piece and used as the base for Aaron Trinder's film. The filming was done under Covid-19 restrictions, with a very small team and without actors. The 3 smiling faces at the end are members of the German Choir.
