A Better Man – Free Documentary Screening
December 4, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+7FREE
Alberta Council of Women’s Shelters (ACWS) in partnership with the City of Edmonton GBV & Sexual Assualt Council Initiative is hosting a free screening of A Better Man.
Co-Director Attiya Khan explains, “A Better Man documents a personal experiment for me and my abusive ex-partner — a step towards understanding and accountability. By getting closer to the truth of what survivors experience, and of why men choose to use violence, we can help stop the abuse.”
A Better Man offers a nuanced look at the healing and revelation that can happen for everyone involved when men take responsibility for their abuse. The film empowers audience members to play new roles in challenging domestic violence, whether in their own relationships or as part of a broader movement for social change.
This documentary is produced by Intervention Productions in co-production with the National Film Board of Canada and is produced in association with TVO.
The event is free but attendees are welcome to donate to the work of ACWS in advance or on the evening.
