Richmond women produce movie to bring awareness to domestic violence

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Two Richmond women are using a silent film to send a loud message about domestic violence.

If you are a movie buff, you probably have seen a silent film or two. They were quite popular back in the early 1900s. However, today, Nudasha Gratic-Fludd and Connie McGowan are bringing back the forgotten medium on social media.

The 12-minute Loud Silence project is making its rounds during October, which is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The ladies are both domestic violence survivors and wanted to use this platform to share an important message for both women and men who may be in this situation.

"It's time to have a voice. It's time to come out of the closet  and release that anger by talking about it and stop living in silence. A lot of people are living in silence everyday and they are coming to work  and they are putting on a face. We want them to take the mask off and get some help and get out of that situation like we both did," said McGowan.
