Film Independent Presents – in partnership with KCRW
From Executive Producer Jordan Peele, this four-part docuseries investigates the events of 1993, when Lorena Bobbitt sliced off her husband’s penis after years of abuse. John and Lorena Bobbitt’s stories exploded into a 24-hour news cycle. She became a national joke, her suffering ignored by the male-dominated press. But, as John spiraled downward, Lorena found strength in the scars of her ordeal.
