Film Project On Emotional Healing From Abuse
Launches Crowdfunding Campaign
Wanders Pass is the latest project of Leah Brown, a central
Wisconsin local who is also the founder of Melody of Imagination.
Based on Leah's novel of the same name, Wanders Pass
discusses the generational effects of abuse and how it shapes
the behavior of the victim, and that of their children and
grandchildren as well.
The newly released project tackles the taboo
subject of sexual abuse by family members.
Even decades-old sexual abuse can
manifest itself in unhealthy behaviors
in the future, especially through
Research from the Centers for Disease
and Prevention states that one in four
girls experience sexual violence in
childhood, and one in 13 boys experience
sexual abuse as children.
Perpetrators are often family members or those closely
related to the victims.
This suggests that abuse can have a
generational effect, with children or
grandchildren of sexual violence
survivors experiencing other forms of
emotional abuse or neglect.
Through its release, the movie hopes to
inspire other survivors of sexual abuse to
find healing, not only for themselves but for
their loved ones too.
Wanders Pass is set in the 1950s in Oregon and talks about Elise
Blath whose life is shattered when a family secret is revealed.
Leah writes, "All too often survivors
of sexual assault suffer silently in
despair and feeling abandoned,
unheard and unloved."
"When living with victims of
abuse, we oftentimes suffer right
along with them."
