“I Am Evidence” exposes the alarming number of untested rape kits in the U.S. through a character–driven narrative, bringing much needed attention to the disturbing pattern of how the criminal justice system has historically treated sexual assault survivors.

Why is there a rape kit backlog? What can we do to fix the problem? The film explores these questions through survivors’ experiences as they trace the fates of their kits and re-engage in the criminal justice process. “I Am Evidence” illuminates how the system has impeded justice while also highlighting those who are leading the charge to work through the backlog and pursue long-awaited justice in these cases.
