Why Didn't I Leave? 
Created by a crew of 19 womxn, "Why Didn't I Leave?" is Hamilton LOFT's inaugural project.

The film explores some of the less recognizable forms of abuse and the overwhelming barriers many survivors face when trying to escape, while highlighting the local organizations working to support survivors.
