In Frozen Kids men tell about their experiences with sexual abuse in their lives during their childhood.
Men are often too ashamed to acknowledge their abuse. 'Frozen Kids' refers to a state of mind originated during sexual abuse.
Many survivors compare it to freezing mentally and physically during the abuse.
Because of the amount of testimonies this film contributes to the processing- and process of acceptance of the victims.
Frozen Kids contributes to the public debate on sexual abuse of boys and men, a till now underexposed group of victims. Another goal is to make the film an education aid.
The documentary is included in IDFA's Docs for Sale (2012).
Frozen Kids was made by independent Dutch filmmaker Cees Franke in 2012.
He was supported by a large number of sponsors who together raised nearly 25,000 euros to make this film possible.
