MOVIE REVIEW: "My Own Cross" By Amy Benny (Domestic Violence Awareness)

Women/girls are most vulnerable of any form of violence. Over the years we have seen so many women lose their lives go as a result of domestic violence.  On this premise we made a film titled 'MY OWN CROSS'. My Own Cross is a story of a woman who contributed her all to her marriage but that does not stop the high level of beatery and humiliation from her husband. In the bid of trying to say all is well in her home and covering up the anomalies she eventually pays with her life. MY OWN CROSS is a tail of anger,  pains, and anguish.

MY OWN CROSS is from the stable of AMY BENNY FOUNDATION in conjunction with AMY BENNY PRODUCTIONS. 
AMY BENNY FOUNDATION Is a non profit and non political organisation poised to campaign on the eradication of violence against women and children and  care for them since they  are  usually victims of all forms of violence in our society.
