Trusted Moments has been produced by the Legal Services Commission of South Australia to educate young people in the prevention of sexual assault by raising their awareness about the law of consent and the importance of respect in relationships.
The film draws attention to the types of attitudes and behaviours that can lead to sexual assault. The film also highlights the inherent legal risks associated with using mobile phones for producing and sharing sexually explicit or invasive images of young people.
Trusted Moments is supported by a Study Guide designed to encourage and support education about sexual assault prevention in a range of settings including schools, youth services and alternative learning environments.
The film is recommended for young people from 15 years of age. It includes some low level depictions of sexualised behaviour. While the film’s primary audience is young people up to 18 years of age, Trusted Moments deals with issues that are relevant to older youth, parents, educators, and people working in the area of crime prevention with a focus on sexual assault.
Trusted Moments continues the work of the Commission's highly successful sexual assault prevention legal theatre project Expect Respect!, which by 2012 had been presented to over 4,000 young people in high schools and youth centres across South Australia.
