Curfew is a short film campaigning for women and non-binary people’s safety in public spaces. It is built around verbatim community responses to the question ‘what would you do if men had a curfew?’ and imagines a world where sexual assault and harrasment are not a threat. It’s about listening to a community, and trying to create, even just for one night, a world where public spaces are safe for everyone. A curfew isn’t the solution, but there is a problem.

About the filmmaker
Calico is a community interest company founded by best friends and activists Daz Scott and Martha Harrison. We create campaigns which encompass live performances in public spaces, films, accessible workshops, and online activism. We work with community groups to reclaim conversations about topics that are important to them. Our campaigns are built around community voices through surveys, focus groups and verbatim interviews. We want Calico to be the voice of the people, and to showcase the power of communities when we come together to fight a common cause. Our projects are calls to action, and aim to inform, to reframe, to validate, and to raise awareness.
