more about the series,
The series is a dramedy that is loosely based on the filmmaker’s own experience with sexual assault and subsequent life as a survivor. Sexual Assault has recently been a hot topic in the media, but what most miss when talking about sexual assault is what happens after. Assault and Other Stages explores what it means to live as a survivor. Spread over 6 episodes, Assault and Other Stages, follows the 5 stages of grief to a conclusion of a 6th stage joy. The series jumps non-sequentially through 7 years of coming to terms with being a survivor. And, yes, it is a comedy. Written and produced by comedian and writer, Rosa Escandon, the series makes jokes about rape but never lets rape become a joke.
