Emmanuelle Bart: French actress says she was victim of incest
By Emma Saunders
French actress Emmanuelle Bart was a victim of incest as a child, she has revealed in a new documentary.
Bart, who won a coveted Csar film award for 1986's Manon des Sources, does not name her alleged abuser in the documentary, titled Such a Resounding Silence, which she also co-directed.
Bart said she had initially not wanted to talk about herself, only about other survivors of incest who are featured.
"But their honesty and their courage made me want to speak out too."
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, co-director Anastasia Mikova told reporters the alleged attacker was not Bart's father, according to the Agence France Presse news agency.
