Women are, indisputably, affected by feeling unsafe in public spaces after dark. They change the way they act, move and live. Concrete-heavy, badly illuminated spaces, like bridges or tunnels create a nightmare scenery and exclude women, as well queer, trans and non-binary people from safely walking through them. The film LIGHTS immerse us into women's discriminatory reality, their vulnerabilities and desperate reactions in the dark. And investigates what can architects or urban planners do to help inclusive transformation of public spaces? How can designers ease omnipresent fear of experiencing sexual violence?
