About the Film
In fall 2017, the MeToo hashtag shook the planet, sparking an unprecedented wave of
sexual assault accusations in the Western world. Today, the storm of virulent misogyny
is raging on, flooding our screens with harassment, defamation, lynching, sextortion,
the sharing of intimate photographs, rape and death threats. . . According to the UN,
73% of women are abused online.
The feature-length documentary "Backlash: Misogyny in the Digital Age" follows four women and one man whose lives have been ransacked by online violence: Laura Boldrini, the most harassed female politician in Italy; Kiah Morris, an African-American politician in the state of Vermont who resigned following severe harassment and threats from rightwing extremists; Marion Séclin, a French YouTuber who received more than 40,000 sexist messages, including rape and death threats; Laurence Gratton, a young teacher in Quebec who was harassed for more than five years by a former colleague; and Glen Canning, the father of Rehtaeh Parsons, a young girl who took her own life after photos of her rape
were spread online.
