The Tormentors

17m Drama 2016

THE TORMENTORS is a gritty and confronting short film, that addresses workplace discrimination and the turmoil caused, when a middle classed family’s values and beliefs are challenged.  Set in Melbourne, Australia, THE TORMENTORS deals with the subject of homophobia in a family run motor mechanics business.  Homophobia in the workplace is a very real problem and according to new research (‘The Age’ Newspaper) gay and lesbian staff are being forced to stay in the closet or choose self-employment to avoid workplace homophobia. Informal discrimination, such as jokes or exclusion, is a prevailing problem, despite dramatic cultural and legal improvements in recent years.
