‘Incredulous’ is a short drama exploring themes of sexual assault. The film follows Camila, a 22-year-old girl struggling to make sense of what has happened to her, she is shunned by her friends and left feeling alone.

The filmmakers of ‘Incredulous’ come from different backgrounds, but the story appealed to all of them. Being able to talk openly about rape was challenging and through their research they came to understand that many sexual attacks do involve someone known to the victim.

The film was inspired by films such as ‘Descent’, ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’, ‘Precious’ and the TV-Show ‘13 Reasons Why’.
