ABOUT THE FILM
AND SO I STAYED is an award-winning documentary about survivors of abuse fighting for their lives and spending years behind bars. This is the story of how the legal system gets domestic violence wrong.
It is a moving portrait of Kim, Tanisha, and Nikki, three survivors whose strikingly similar stories are separated by over 30 years. None of them were believed, and each of them was criminalized for fighting back.
91 mins | Documentary | 2021 | USA | English
Directed by Natalie Pattillo and Daniel A. Nelson
