L.A. Ladies Interview #5: Jessie Kahnweiler on her film, "Meet My Rapist"

It's time for some serious talk, people...

Rape.

It's happening all the time. Maybe you know someone who has been raped. Maybe you yourself have been. Maybe you recently saw something on TV, read something online, read an article about someone's experience...

The fact of the matter is, rape is very real. It's tragic, it's horrifying. No one deserves it.

So, what happens when your best friend has been a victim of this heinous crime?

You watch her write, direct, and act in a short film about her experience. She does it to inform, to learn about herself, to heal, to inspire others to have strength...and, shocking to many, she does it through comedy. Yep. It's true. An incredibly difficult task indeed.

Jessie Kahnweiler, one of the most talented women I've ever met and my best friend, has created a very powerful piece of art and I wanted to share her journey, her reasoning, and her experience with you...

Here is my interview with her as she takes me through her process and her purpose behind her film:


And now that you're probably curious to see her film, you can watch it here (warning: if you are easily offended, are particularly sensitive to this subject, or feel incredibly uncomfortable right now, proceed with caution...still, it's definitely worth watching):


Some of you may be sitting there, judging her. Maybe you don't understand or are horribly offended. Still, many of you may be inspired and get what Jessie is trying to do here.

This short film put me through a whirlwind of emotions, but in the end, it brought me closer to my best friend and I honor and respect her amazing work. She's truly an inspiration.

Don't forget to check out more of Jessie's work here.
