With Outrage we see Lupino's remarkable talent as a director and writer as well as her conviction to tackle taboo social issues. Made by her production company, the film is a sensitive look at the devastating after-effects of sexual assault.
Brave and controversial at the time for daring to point the finger of blame at a culture that subtly endorses sexual assault by punishing victims instead of perpetrators Outrage feels all the more relevant in the wake of the #MeToo movement in Hollywood.
Screening on 35mm, Outrage is presented by She's A Rebel, and will include a short introduction from Alice Miller.
