Timekeeper is a film focussing on the child’s perspective of coercive control. The film was commissioned by Lewisham Council, principally to raise awareness among its workforce, but also the wider community.
The narrative for the film is based on interviews with women, who have a lived experience of domestic abuse and professionals working in the area. The research threw up some truly tragic and shocking cases, highlighting domestic abuse as society’s hidden shame. Children often witness the abuse and in some cases are drawn into it by the perpetrator.
