A Woman’s Voice

A drama that delves into mental health, domestic abuse and female empowerment.
3/5

Review

Directed by Robert Bruce Ing, from a script by Sandra Lynne Sutter & Deanna Marie Hunter, ‘A Woman’s Voice’ is a short drama film that follows four women amidst their personal struggles. Set to a musical track listing by Sutter, the film stars Niki Middleton, Lan Kim, Leeann Gomez and Sandra Lynne Sutter. Additional cast include; Rosemary Crow Shoe and Eric Mortimer. Filmed predominantly with first-time talent, the narrative explores themes of abuse, mental health, sisterhood and female empowerment. An endearing watch that will give a helping hand to many.

Throughout the 12-minute film, constructed with a non-linear narrative, the audience will be rewarded to the musical talent of Sandra Lynn Sutter. ‘How Many Times’, ‘Love Touch’, ‘Midnight Serenade’ and ‘Thank You’ are showcased throughout the soundtrack. Despite the film tackling bullying, peer-pressure and the undervaluation of woman, the leading plotline focuses on domestic violence and abuse. A poignant scene, set at a truck-stop diner, follows a female victim of abuse being cunningly escorted away from her abuser – a tremendous stroke of sisterhood and community.

Robert Bruce Ing, Sandra Lynne Sutter and Deanna Marie Hunter have created a touching drama that doesn’t shy away from exploring women’s misfortune. The film deserves high praise for its empowering conclusion and its symbolic use of rose-tinted-glasses – seen throughout the short. The film is captured with quality cinematography, wrapped up with neat post-production. Highly recommended.
