Portrait of Abuse: An American Epidemic (2007) - 45 minutes
Portrait of Abuse: An American Epidemic at Amazon.com

Imagine living in fear ... not feeling safe in your own home. Imagine that the person you love is your greatest enemy.

"Every 15 seconds, an abuser strikes in America and more than three women are murdered by their husbands or boyfriends every day."

Portrait of Abuse: An American Epidemic is a compelling and revealing story that not only raises our social awareness of the far reaching effects and cycles of domestic violence, but digs into the psyche of both victim and abuser.

We all play a role in recognizing the signs and speaking out to stop this tragic epidemic.

Through interviews with actual victims and abusers, this hopeful film offers practical advice from survivors, doctors, nurses, shelter advocates, social workers and prosecutors. This one hour film is produced in High Definition by AMS Production Group, whose recent projects include the award winning documentaries The Power of Harmony and Shock. Interviewees in this compelling documentary include mothers, daughters, and sisters who are victims and survivors; emergency medicine & OB/GYN physicians, psychiatrists, nurses, social workers, women's shelter advocates, and the nation's leading prosecutor who oversees programs to address violence against women.
