Not That Kind Of Guy
What happens when you step so far across another person’s boundaries that there is no going 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, stories of identity crisis, denial, and responsibility emerge. The frank exchanges are challenging, but also liberating.
Director Signe Rosenlund-Hauglid attempts to add nuance to the image of who is capable of committing sexual assault. She herself has previously pressed charges for a party-related rape, and is well aware of the consequences it may have to be subjected to assault.
The film focuses on the abusers, hoping to understand what makes men capable of committing this kind of sexual assault.
