Podcast on Crimes Against Women

Oct 16 2023 • 54 mins

Join us for a transformative discussion with survivor Lt. Mark Wynn (retired) and film producers Kirsten Kelly and Andrew Schwertfeger as we talk about the new film, "This is Where I Learned Not to Sleep." Released in 2023, this documentary film explores Mark's journey after experiencing domestic violence as a child, as well as his commitment to transforming the law enforcement response to domestic violence.

In our behind-the-scenes look at the documentary, we learn about the compelling reasons behind its creation and the process of returning to Mark's hometown in Texas. Mark's story, depicted in the film, serves as an inspiration to survivors of abuse, encouraging men to take a stand against domestic and sexual violence and addressing the necessity for victim-centered law enforcement leadership. With references to impacts from movements like Black Lives Matter and Me Too, the conversation delves into issues of white male privilege and police reform as we emphasize the collective responsibility to end domestic violence, an issue that resonates in households across the world.
