Look Away confronts the darker side of rock and a subject the music industry has glossed over for years: abuse against women.
For the first time, women some of whom were groomed in their teenage years offer an unfiltered account of their experiences as they share some of the abuses and exploitation that were tolerated in the music industry in the 70's and 80's. These women share their encounters with powerful music names like front men Steven Tyler and Axl Rose, and Kim Fowley, manager of fledgling teen group The Runaways.
Look Away addresses how the music industry fostered a culture where the abuse of women was normalised.
"Dark and distressing."
"This is a simultaneously powerful and angering film.... enlightening."
