‘This Is Not Consent’ as reviewed by Emily Thomas

This is Not Consent (Gemma Bovenizer) is a striking, emotional piece protesting the assumption that consent is linked to the way women dress. The film consists of girls standing in front of a white background removing items of clothing, while newspaper articles and images relating to the topic of consent are projected onto their face and body. The short has been shared by rape crisis centres around the country, and Bovenizer ends the piece by listing helplines and centres throughout Ireland.
