The Light of the Moon

In this 2017 SXSW Audience Award Winner for Best Feature Narrative, Bonnie, a young and successful Latina architect, is sexually assaulted while walking home from an evening out with friends in Brooklyn, NY. At first she attempts to keep the assault a secret from her long-term boyfriend Matt, but the truth quickly emerges. Bonnie emphatically denies the impact of what has just happened to her. She fights to regain normalcy and control of her life, but returning to her old life is more complicated than expected. Her attempt to recapture the intimacy she previously had with Matt falters, and cracks begin to surface in their relationship. Another attack in the neighborhood drives Bonnie further into denial before an encounter with an at-risk woman causes her to face the truth and confront her own self-blame.
