You Look a Lot Like Me

You Look a Lot Like Me

"This film is a must-see for any victim, family member, or professional working in domestic violence. It avoids being trite, is spot on from a practice and scholarly perspective, and has tremendous educational value akin to a three-credit course. You Look a Lot Like Me is the real deal, elegantly told.”

About the Film

My educational documentary, You Look a Lot Like Me, explores the serious social problem of domestic violence in the United States. Its carefully woven first-person narratives take us on a journey that reveals the universality of the survivor’s experience, a journey which clearly demonstrates that no one is immune to the far-reaching impacts of domestic abuse.

An array of experts working in the field of domestic violence prevention provide a deeper context to the victims’ stories, while the astounding confession of a convicted abuser compels the audience to examine our preconceived notions about the face of abuse.

The film is currently used as an informational and teaching resource in a variety of settings across the U.S., including universities, mental health clinics, libraries, etc.  My production company, Tortoise and Finch Productions, LLC, continues to develop a number of materials around domestic violence awareness and prevention and we look forward to providing updates via
