HBO documentary I Am Evidence screens on Showcase on Monday.
This investigates the way sexual assault cases are handled by police departments across the United States and is produced by Mariska Hargitay.
I Am Evidence exposes the shocking number of untested rape kits in the United States today, estimated to be in the hundreds of thousands. Despite the power of DNA to solve and prevent crimes, these kits containing potentially crucial evidence languish untested in police evidence storage rooms. Behind each of these kits lies an individual’s unresolved sexual assault case. The film introduces viewers to several of these survivors, who still await justice, as well as the prosecutors, investigators, advocates and journalists fighting on their behalf.
Monday June 18 at 9.30pm on Showcase.
