Lifting the lid on taboo topics
You Can’t Ask That, ABC, Wednesday April 3 at 9pm
THE fourth series of this documentary series asks misunderstood, misjudged or marginalised Australians the awkward, inappropriate or uncomfortable questions you’ve always wanted to know the answers to but may have been afraid to ask.
This proudly home-grown format attacks stereotypes and stigma by asking confronting and loaded questions to Australians whose lives are dominated by the judgments of the rest of us.
Interviewees share their first-person insights and lived experiences with candour, humour and dignity.
The opening episode goes beyond the shocking statistics of domestic and family violence, empowering eight survivors to reflect on their personal experiences of living in violent, abusive and controlling relationships.
