I Was Lorena Bobbitt

Directed by Danishka Esterhazy
Canada / United States, 2020 (fiction, 97 minutes, colour, English)
Also known as "Sous les coups de mon mari : L'affaire Lorena Bobbitt"

Film Description:
"Lorena Bobbitt became a household name and made tabloid headlines when after years of abuse by her husband, she cut off his penis with a knife in 1993. [...] This film follows her journey from a wide-eyed, immigrant bride to a battered wife into an unlikely media sensation. I Was Lorena Bobbitt also documents her ultimately emerging as a strong, thoughtful woman who has devoted her life to advocating for other abused women."
