Violenta domestica se petrece in general in spatele unor usi inchise. Batai pumni sau picioare, diverse tipuri de tortura. Tiranie si durere, foame, psihologie, pistoale sau cutite. Si cei care care produc aceasta durere sunt exact cei pe care ii iubim. Soti, parteneri, iubiti. Conform statisticilor, o femeie din trei a fost agresata. Dar cate mai sunt cele care nu pot intra in statistici? Tac si le este rusine sa recunoasca adevarul. Numai cateva au curajul sa povesteasca tot…
Alena Cincerova (1954) a colaborat mai multi ani cu tatal sau, regizorul Raduz Cincera. In 1990 a infiintat societatea sa proprie de productie, specializata mai ales pe programe multi-media si filme documentare. A produs peste o suta de documentare si a readus pe ecrane si pe scena contemporana Kinoautomat-ul, primul film interactiv din lume, o inventie faimoasa a tatalui sau din 1967.

Introdusa de Annie Lennox si realizata aproape in intregime de femei, seria Femei in linia intai spune povesti personale ale unor femei curajoase care au supravietuit abuzurilor si care vor ca vocile lor sa fie auzite. Filmul Gaseste-i un nume investigheaza violul ca arma de razboi in Rep. Democrata Congo.  In ultimii 10 ani provinciile estice din Rep. Democrata Congo s-au aflat in razboi. Femeile sunt cele care duc povara. E imposibil de aflat numarul exact al victimelor violurilor. Gonite din comunitate, femeile sunt deseori reticente sa ceara ajutor. In schimb trebuie sa suporte singure cicatricele fizice si psihologice.

Omoara mai multe femei decat cancerul. Afecteaza una din trei femei la nivel mondial. Lasa cicatrice pe viata. Este vorba despre violenta  impotriva femeii. Incepand din ianuarie 2008, 185 de tari sunt parte a Conventiei privind eliminarea tuturor formelor de discriminare impotriva femeii. Cu toate acestea estimarile ONU arata ca abuzurile violente nu numai ca persista, dar sunt in crestere: cel putin una din trei femei a fost batuta, fortata sa faca sex sau abuzata pe perioada vietii; o cincime din femei declara ca au fost abuzate sexual inainte de varsta de 15 ani; anual 500.000 de femei mor ca urmare a sarcinii sau a nasterii – un numar care a variat prea putin in ultimii 20 de ani.



Domestic violence usually happens behind closed doors. Beating, kicking, fistfights. All kinds of torture. Tyranny of pain, hunger, psychology, guns, knives or fists. Moreover, the creators of all this pain are our closest relatives, our loved ones. Spouses, partners, lovers. According to the available statistics, every third woman has experienced it. But how many are out there that no statistic report could cover? They keep quiet. They’re ashamed to open the door and tell the truth. Only few have the courage to tell the whole truth…
Alena Cincerova (1954) worked for many years with her father, director Raduz Cincera. She started her own production company in 1990, with the focus on multi-media projects and documentaries for the Czech Television. She produced over one hundred documentaries and brought also Kinoautomat back on the screen and stage – the first interactive film in the history, her father’s famous invention.

Democratic Republic of Congo: Find a Word for It
(from the series Women on the front line)
It kills more women than cancer. It affects one in three women worldwide. It leaves women mentally scarred for life. “It” is violence against women and girls. As of January 2008, 185 countries were party to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women. Yet UN estimates show that violent abuses not only persist, but are on the rise: at least one in three women has been beaten, coerced into sex or otherwise abused in her lifetime; a fifth of women report being sexually abused before the age of 15; 500,000 women die from pregnancy and childbirth each year – a number that has changed little in 20 years.
Introduced by Annie Lennox and shot by mostly all-women crews, the series Women on the frontline tell the personal stories of the courageous women who have survived abuses and now want their voices to be heard. The movie Find a Word for It investigates rape as a war weapon in Democratic Republic of Congo. For the last ten years the Eastern Provinces of the Democratic Republic of Congo have been at war. The women bear the brunt of it. The precise number of rape victims is impossible to know. Shunned by their community, the women are often reluctant to demand help. Instead they are forced to bear the physical and psychological scars all alone.

„If you say rape, people usually can imagine what’s happened, but what these women go through is not… I think the word is not suitable. Sexual terrorism? I don’t know.” Dr. Denis Mukwege, director of Panzi hospital
