    I invited five young actresses to spend several days with our team in a theater hall. They all participated in the same audition, in which they experienced systematic abuse of sexual and violent nature. I was one of the contenders as well.
    We wanted to suppress this day as quickly as possible. Since the director continued his abuse by using the audition material to edit a whole new movie, there is currently a legal battle between the production company and the actresses taking place. Not much of it has yet reached the public. Today, I myself study directing and explore with the women in The Case You, what occurred back then and what it now means for our lives.
