Not That Kind of Guy

Director: Signe Rosenlund-Hauglid
Duration: 40 min

What happens when you go so far beyond another person's boundary that there is no way back?

The documentary Not That Kind of Guy follows three young men convicted of party-related rape as they grapple with allegations, trial, sentencing, imprisonment and finally - release. In conversations with the director, who shares her own experiences with assault, stories of identity crisis, denial and responsibility emerge. The frank exchanges are challenging, but also liberating. In this way, the film can help others start important conversations about a difficult subject.
