A documentary raising awareness of family violence and restorative justice will be held at this year’s Human Rights Arts and Film Festival. It’s called “A Better Man”.
“When Attiya Khan was a teenager she lived with her boyfriend Steve for two years, during which time he abused her on a daily basis. 20 years later, Attiya and Steve arrange to meet and record their intimate conversations. Will Steve take responsibility for the abuse? When the film had its world premiere at Hot Docs, therapists were available for consultation in the lobby after the screening – a statement to how powerful this film is. A Better Man, is truly remarkable documentary making. It’s a privilege that Attiya has allowed an audience to bear witnesses to her restorative justice.”
