SPEAK

3 out of 5 women will be victims of sexual abuse in their lifetime.
2 out of 5 men.
9 out of 10 of them will never talk about it.

Spacecake productions first effort was a short film about teenage sexual abuse. It won numerous awards and played at festivals all over the world. It went on to become part of the teaching curriculum for trauma nurses throughout Canada.

Inspired by his award winning portrayal of real-life sexual abuse survivor and NHL hockey player Sheldon Kennedy, Jonathan wanted to do more to raise awareness for this painful subject. He wrote the short film for Speak and with full support and generous donations from of our local film community, Spacecake was able to produce a beautifully made short film about a difficult issue that found an important afterlife – it is still used today by counsellors working in the field of mental health and youth services.
