Santa Clara Magazine, Can't Thread a Moving Needle

©2016ANNA+ELENA=BALBUSSO TWINS WWW.BALBUSSO.COM NEW ART: SEXUAL ASSAULT ON COLLEGE CAMPUSES, LET THEM HEAR YOUR VOICE.
Article titled: Can't Thread a Moving Needle by Danae Stahlnecker 
 To tackle the issue of #sexsual #assaul on #college #campuses, a playwriting project comes to the screen—to reach schools around the country.
THE FILM is uncomfortable to watch, intentionally so. Actors recount real stories of sexual assault from college campuses across the country with no censor. The details are jarring, but it had to be this way director and professor Michael Whalen ’89 says. To do the victims justice, you have to be truthful. To change a harmful culture, you have to shatter it. But very often we don't have the ability to talk with a survivor—or in some way experience what they experienced—so we have genuine empathy. With art, we are able to delve into the emotion and not just the logic of the situation.”
