IowaCASA is proud to partner with the Varsity Cinema to present "Test Pattern." The critically-acclaimed new film follows an interracial couple whose relationship is put to the test after a Black woman is sexually assaulted and her white boyfriend drives her from hospital to hospital in search of a rape kit. The film analyzes the effects of the systemic factors and social conditioning women face when navigating sex and consent within the American patriarchy, along with exploring institutional racism from a black female point of view. The film does contain depictions of sexual violence and could be triggering for some viewers. If you or someone you know needs help, contact the Iowa Victim Service Call Center at 1-800-770-1650 or text "IOWAHELP" to 20121.
