A LOCAL producer could not be more excited about her film’s Perth debut next week, an event that will help raise funds for a charity.

Caged In is a drama about a courageous mother and daughter trapped in an abusive relationship.

Hamilton Hill resident Maggie Meyer said the experiences of family and friends had encouraged her to write a film centred on domestic violence.

She hoped it would highlight the reality for victims but also give hope to those in a similar situation.

The film premiered at the 168 Film Festival in Los Angeles in August, claiming an incredible six awards from seven nominations.

Meyer, the film’s producer and lead actress, said she hoped the film would be received in the same fashion in Perth.

“One of our main purposes for making this film is to use it to raise funds for charity and that is exactly what this screening event is about,” she said.

“All proceeds from the night will go to (Cloverdale group) Starick, an organisation that provides safety and protection from family and domestic violence for children, young people and women.”

The Perth premiere will be held on Sunday at the State Library Theatre.
