Women's Aid Respite

Women's Aid Respite wins a Golden Arrow from the British Arrows Creative Awards! Directed by Molly Burdett with DoP Robbie Ryan BSC ISC. 

Women’s Aid launches a powerful campaign – called Respite– to raise awareness that women in abusive relationships have fewer opportunities to spend time away from their partners during COVID lockdowns.

The Respite campaign shows how any chance for survivors to get out, even for a few hours, has been drastically reduced. Released in 60-second and 90-second versions, the film ends with the line, “For thousands of women and children right now, home is anything but safe.” Created by ENGINE Creative, the TV commercial and online film aim to increase awareness and donations for Women’s Aid leading into the holiday period.
