“After All This Time” is a performance about the incredible lengths victims must go to in the attempt to have their stories heard and believed — even though that, in spite of our best efforts, it is most likely futile. No matter how old or new an allegation, a survivor of assault will be made to doubt themselves and their story countless times in a circus of revictimization parading itself as justice.
While “After All This Time” is a performance, it is also a work of non-fiction. The camera follows the artist as she records the name of the man who assaulted her and then buries it in a time capsule as a futile insurance policy against future doubt.
