In 2019 and 2020 the Human Dignity Trust produced two impact documentaries to highlight the archaic colonial era laws that continue to blight the lives of millions of people across the Commonwealth. The documentaries, The Sky Will Not Fall and A Wake Up Call are designed as tools for everyone to engage their communities, media, civil society and people in positions of power.
This toolkit is an invitation to use the Trust’s award-winning documentaries for screenings and discussions. It provides comprehensive recommendations for digital screenings, Q&As, panel discussions and promotion.
These films were made to show high-level decision makers how these laws mean that adult same-sex consensual intimacy is criminalised, while survivors of sexual violence are unable to seek justice and perpetrators go unpunished. Through an international network of inspiring activists and advocates, we can use the law and powerful storytelling to push for systemic and cultural change.
