‘Love, Honour and Disobey’ tells the story of domestic violence in Britain’s black and ethnic minority communities through the eyes of Southall Black Sisters.
The film interweaves powerful personal testimony from abused women with a forceful analysis of the issues that make domestic violence an even more terrible experience for minority women.
Getting to the heart of the multicultural debate it looks at all forms of domestic violence ranging from honour killings to forced marriages. And it examines the role of immigration controls, culturally sensitive policing, religious fundamentalism and the attitudes of minority communities themselves in continuing to endanger the lives and well being of many women.
