When Sasha Joseph Neulinger was a young boy, he was sexually abused by his own uncles. Now a grown man, he steps behind the camera to direct a deeply personal and grippingly intimate tale of trauma and his path in overcoming it. Drawing from 200 hours of home videos and frank conversations with his family, Rewind reconstructs Neulinger’s childhood and reveals the intergenerational legacy and cycle of abuse. The film simultaneously captures Neulinger’s road towards bringing his abusers to justice, creating an inspiring case of resilience and activism. As we continue to grapple with the revelations of Me Too, Rewind adds to the conversation with an urgent and sensitive discussion of child sexual abuse.

Sasha Joseph Neulinger (director) in attendance for post-screening Q&A.
