Gaslighting PSA

When given the opportunity to create a PSA style video with a topic of my choosing, I took the chance to focus on an issue that doesn’t often find itself in the spotlight. Gaslighting is an insidious form of abuse that can happen in any relationship and leaves the survivor feeling as if they can’t trust their experience of the world because it has been beaten into them that it is false. Most people’s knowledge of Gaslighting comes from the movie from which it gets its name, Gaslight (1944) featuring Ingrid Bergman and Charles Boyer. Using clips from the movie and a script of my own writing, I re-created the experience of what it’s like to be Gaslit. The video recognizes Gaslighting as a form of abuse and let’s individuals know that they are not alone in their experience of this heinous tactic.
