Living Underground



Archipelago Productions intends to use a creative lens to give a voice to the voiceless: Women who have survived domestic abuse in the Hobart area. We will begin by identifying willing participants to be interviewed, we will work in consultation with social worker professionals and we will then begin filming a documentary.
“Living Underground” will examine and provide local survivors a safe place to speak. We will shine a light on the vulnerable who have lived through and endured the worst type of abuse, the abuse at the hands of those they loved, lived with and trusted. Their stories will be told as they want it to be heard.
