Look the Other Way

Look the Other Way 

By: Michael Joshua

“Despite being a work of fiction, this story aims for a nonfiction feel, with a strong moral as its guiding light . . . It is a reminder that domestic assault and sexual violence are everywhere, in every community, and that turning a blind eye only serves to further traumatize victims and embolden abusers.” - Foreword Reviews

Overall, the screenplay tackles the severity of sexual assault in an unflinching way, and it does a particularly good job of showing how quickly some men will try to laugh off or cover up terrible crimes of their peers…” Kirkus Reviews

About the Book

Look the Other Way is a passion project between native Michigan screenwriters Michael Mohan Joshua and Patrick Foley over a three-month period in 2003. Over the years, Joshua has kept editing the story into what it is today, a snapshot of modern society. Daily news of sexual assault is prevalent throughout society. No longer can we as a global community look the other way. Through education and communication, citizens can change the norms of “bad behavior.”
