(AP) Greek director Alexandro Avranas says he was seeking to give domestic abuse victims a voice in his deeply disturbing movie "Miss Violence."


Avranas said in an interview that the film was based on a true story in Germany about a grandfather who prostituted his daughter and his granddaughters to his friends. The director said he was driven to make a film to "speak all about these children who have no voice. "


He said while the actors grew depressed due to the movie's subject matter "they had the feeling that they are helping other persons to stop doing this, to see a way to make a revolution. That was our hope, our motive."


The film premieres Monday in competition at the Venice Film Festival.
