The Best Work You May Never See: Grey NY's "Cursing Parrots" For UNICEF Shows Lasting Impact Of Domestic Violence
A new global report on violence against children released by UNICEF reveals 1 in 4 young children across the world are exposed to domestic violence at home--taking such forms as violent discipline, sexual abuse and homicide.
Grey New York created an internet film to support the launch of this landmark report. Titled “Cursing Parrots,” the video features un-doctored, found-footage of real cursing parrots and the derogatory phrases they learn from their households.
A series of supered messages than reads: “If a parrot can remember what happens in an abusive home, imagine a child”/1 in 4 young children are exposed to domestic violence”/”Violence marks children forever. Recognize it. Report it.”
