Locked Inside Us
Locked Inside Us is a Public Service Announcement / micro-short film geared towards middle school through college students and is about the “little t” traumas we keep inside us that affect our lives moving forward.
Bound was created by Healing TREE Artist Advocate Samantha Scaffidi and produced by Voyager Studios LLC in association with SLMBR PRTY. It answers the important question of why people who are victims of abuse often feel a powerful attachment to those who have abused them. Furthermore, it points towards resources that emphasize trauma’s impact on the brain and allow for effective treatment (apart from the typical cognitive approach that doesn’t engage the survival part of the brain that is impacted during abuse) that leads to breaking the cycle and finding healing.
Bound was re-released in May of 2020 in the context of COVID-19 in partnership with Women’s Aid and Irish singer-songwriter Mick Flannery.
