Love, Honour and Disobey tells the story of domestic violence in Britain's black and ethnic minority communities through the eyes of the Southall Black Sisters, who have been working to combat domestic violence for more than 25 years.
The film interweaves powerful personal testimony from abused women with forceful analysis of the issues that make domestic violence an even more terrible experience for minority women.
Getting to the heart of the multicultural debate, this film looks at all forms of domestic violence ranging from honour killings to forced marriages and examines the role of immigration controls, culturally sensitive policing, religious fundamentalism and the attitudes of minority communities in contributing to domestic violence.
