A film by Kel Hanney (USA/2015/14:04)
“I am THEM” is a series of short films that explore the pivotal turning points for three different women. In the first film, a woman reveals the role she played in an assisted suicide. In the second film, a different woman tries to build a more trusting relationship by revealing to her partner that she was sexually abused. In the last story, a woman with cancer decides that, rather than devoting her energy to “beat” the disease, she will choose to feel empowered while living with it.
