EVERYONE IS FIGHTING THEIR OWN BATTLES
Dinah is preparing for her first ever fight as an amateur kick-boxer. As the fight approaches she attempts to re-connect with her father, however this brings back traumatic memories from the past.
The next film coming by Gatton Films, DINAH, is a story about overcoming abuse. With the rise of the #MeToo movement and awareness on mental health issues, we recognise that many people grow up struggling with mental health issues as a consequence of their trauma.
The resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement also highlights a need for conversations on trauma, with members of the black community at the heart of it. We hope DINAH will not only increase awareness of how trauma can linger years after the abusive act for all who watch it, but also lead to a greater understanding on the subject from a black and mixed-race perspective.
