This documentary, Believe Me, will provide the audience with an in-depth look into the topic of sexual assault at UNCA. Anne Slatton is teaching a documentary filmmaking class this semester in the mass communications department and assigned each student to make a documentary about any topic they wish. With the help of 2 other classmates, Gordon Gellatly and Austin Sloan, this film follows the stories of several survivors of sexual assault on this campus, as well as interviews with the president of one of the fraternities on campus, a previous athlete, Chief Boyce, a counselor at the health services center, an OurVOICE employee and Keishea Boyd, assistant Title IX coordinator. The purpose of this film is to provide a wide range of angles about the topic while avoiding as much anger, finger-pointing and bias as possible. I believe the point of a documentary is to provide the audience with all the facts, and allow them to come up with their own conclusions. We hope this film gets people talking about the issue of sexual assault so we can start changing the rape culture surrounding us, especially on college campuses.
