A Story about Toni, Mike, and Valerie

Originally produced as a proof of concept video for the Love, Sex, & Choices series, A Story about Toni, Mike, and Valerie is a 45-min short film exploring similar concepts. An urban soap opera video based on women’s real stories about their relationships with men. We explored reasons why women engaged in unprotected sex with male partners that they distrusted. Groups were held with women in the urban northeast and those discussions were analyzed to form the basis to the stories told in this work.
