Welcome. I am the writer/director of Backlog, the true story of Valerie Neumann, key witness in the Senate Judiciary Hearings in 2010 - to end the Rape kit Backlogs (a +100,000 log of untested rape kits). This story needs to be told. Feel free to scroll and learn a bit about why we are making this film.

After collegiate Valerie Neumann's brutal assault and silencing from authorities, her rape kit becomes shelved, one of 100,000 forgotten rape kits, known as the backlogs. She is given the opportunity to testify as the key witness in the U.S. Senate Hearings, but can she trust a system that has betrayed her? Based on a true story.
I was assaulted in college. I felt so alone.
Eight years later, my friends at USC are still being assaulted, and the system is not designed to protect them.
I want the Supreme Court to schedule a new hearing - where a quota of rape cases are required to be to trial each month.
Additionally, I want this film to stream on every college campus in the US.
