M6 mobilizes its antenna to sensitize TV viewers to the violence suffered by women within the couple. A number of Exclusive Investigations AND Forbidden Zone is devoted to the subject this Sunday evening. An exceptional documentary, directed by Mélanie Van Der Ende, will be broadcast from 21:05.
"I wanted to show the mechanism in which these women are imprisoned." Often, people outside these phenomena say: 'She could very well leave, why does she agree to be hit for so many years' "These people can not understand the mechanism in which these women found themselves," says Melanie Van Der Ende. "They are trapped, often trapped, isolated, a mechanism that is being set up as and when I want to show that there are solutions," says the director.
