To mark the commencement of a national partnership with Picturehouse the domestic abuse charity, Refuge, has launched a powerful short film called 'Hide and Seek.'

The film seeks to raise awareness that 90% of domestic abuse that takes place in the family home is witnessed and experienced by children.

Created by BBH London, the film aims to raise funds and awareness of domestic abuse which unfortunately affects so many women and children. Shockingly, domestic abuse affects one in four women in her life, and 800,000 children.

To highlight the sheer scale of domestic abuse in the UK, and the children effected, the new campaign twists around the children's game of 'Hide and Seek.'

Directed by Lucy Bridger, it flicks through various scenes of children with their eyes covered, counting. The viewer quickly comes to realise that the children aren't counting as part of an innocent game of 'Hide and Seek' but in fact trying to shroud out the sound of abuse in the background.

The final scene sees a mother playing the game with her child, having been rescued from domestic abuse by the charity.
