When children get “divorced” from one of their parents…
This is the subject of Dictature affective, a one-off documentary that explores the sad reality of parental alienation, where children are torn apart by their parents’ heated disputes. In this psychological battle, youngsters are left with only one option: to choose one parent and reject the other.
From constantly vilifying their ex-partner, to making false accusations of violence or sexual abuse, some parents use all kinds of perverse and often reckless strategies to gain the undivided love of their offspring.
With a human, level-headed and sensitive approach, Dictature affective lifts the veil on an often unrecognized phenomenon that disrupts the lives of many children, fathers and mothers.
This is a must-see documentary for all parents…
