Chris Gavagan is a Brooklyn filmmaker working on a documentary about sexual abuse in sports called “Coached into Silence”. In this documentary, he asked his old coach to be interviewed, pretending the film was more along the lines of honoring him. He confronted this man, who abused him as a child, asking “what he felt about the abuse he caused” while on camera. The quote on the poster, “It’s all about being unembarrassed and unashamed,” was the coach’s response - what I’m assuming as a very guilty, very caught off-guard one. Chris currently travels to film survivors for Coached into Silence. Find more info here.
Photographed in Brooklyn, NY on June 6th.
