NO! The Rape Documentary Trailer

This looks like an important and powerful new documentary. Here is what the website has to say:

"Produced and directed over a period of eleven years, seven of which were full time, by Aishah Shahidah Simmons, NO! explores the international reality of rape, other forms of sexual assault and healing through the first person testimonies, scholarship, spirituality, activism, and cultural work of African-Americans. This groundbreaking, award-winning documentary also explores how rape is used as a weapon of homophobia."
