Statistics of domestic violence in Aotearoa-this is a killer, with the police attending one family harm callout every four minutes.
Dr. jury says glamourised abuse flies in the face of all of this is done to reduce these numbers.
“Every time something like this POPs up, it destroys this message”.
When it was first launched in New Zealand 365 days is the R16 rating, but that rose after the chief censor David Shanks screwed.
“We felt that the age rating was inadequate, we thought it was still in the 18-plus level,” he said.
“We also wrote to Netflix and said that they should warn for sexual violence, as well as potentially very impressive content in this film that the audience should be warned about.”
Shanks said it was unfortunate that the legislation his office functioned under it was in 1993, and thus did not cover streaming services.
But there was a bill pending in Parliament, which if adopted, will change and will allow Netflix to more rate films in accordance with New Zealand standards.
It will also give more opportunities for the public to raise concerns about films, television shows and documentaries being tested.
365 days prompted by Welsh singer Duffy, who recently showed her own kidnapping ordeal, in order to write an open letter to the head of Netflix reed Hastings.
Duffy said it upset her that Netflix will be the basis for the film, eroticised kidnapping and distorted sexual violence and trafficking, sexual.
Executive Director of sexual abuse service the help, Kathryn McPhillips, said she could not understand why such films as 365 days still produced.
“It desensitises people to violence and promoting it as a way of being, especially when it’s on the big screen,” she said.
“We see films as models, you know, something to emulate and like more than life, so we see them as amazing.
“Thus, to put these ideas in this place is very dangerous for our society.”
Said McPhillips victims were often strongly influenced by such films as 365 daysrunning back to my experience.
She said it also minimizes the behavior of those responsible and to encourage unhealthy ideas about love and sexual relations.
Netflix in Australia declined to comment, but a spokesman told the Reuters news Agency that Netflix was licensed for the film and was not involved in the production.
