Silent movies have been hiding scenes of abuse under the mask of pure entertainment. With the loss of copyright of dozens of these silent movies on January 1st 2019, ANAIS wondered if they could be turned into a brand new cinematographic product, one that would educate and empower a new generation of women. This was the birth of Unquiet Voices, a 40-minute movie in which seven victims of domestic violence break the silence and give voice to abused characters in silent movies for the first time in 100 years. The movie is split into seven chapters, corresponding to seven different silent movies.
