Sarah Thomas’s 30-minute film ‘Scarred’ is aimed at spreading awareness on an issue ‘that is as heinous as rape’
Sarah Thomas, 21, believes acid attacks are as heinous a crime as rape, but it does not get the kind of attention that rape does, and often the perpetrators get away scot-free. Victims are often left alone to deal with the horrifying scars and many are forced to hide behind a veil.
To spread awareness on the issue, Sarah, a BSc Visual Communication graduate of St Joseph’s Arts and Science College, Bangalore has filmed a documentary on acid attack victims. Sarah claims her 30-minute film—titled Scarred — is only the second in the country after Burnt But Not Defeated.
