NorWest presents a screening of “A Better Man”

November 21, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

Free

For Domestic Violence Awareness Month, NorWest Co-op Community Health presents the first Winnipeg screening of the documentary A Better Man (2017) on November 21, 2017.

During the two years they lived together, Steve abused Attiya on a daily basis. Now 20 years later, Attiya has asked Steve to meet. She wants to know if he will finally take responsibility for his violent actions. Following a series of intimate conversations between the former couple, A Better Man offers a fresh and nuanced look at the healing and revelation that can happen for everyone involved when men take responsibility for their abuse.

NorWest presents a screening of “A Better Man” at The Park Theatre on November 21, 2017.

Illuminating a unique paradigm for domestic-violence prevention, A Better Man offers a fresh and nuanced look at the healing and revelation that can happen for everyone involved when men take responsibility for their abuse. It also empowers audience members to play new roles in challenging domestic violence, whether it’s in their own relationships or as part of a broader movement for social change.

“I desperately want domestic violence to stop. Art, storytelling, and deep, painful conversations are an integral part of the solution. By getting closer to the truth of what survivors experience, and of why men choose to use violence, we can help stop the violence.

A Better Man documents a personal experiment for me and my abusive ex-partner, a step towards healing, understanding, and accountability. My hope is that our story will motivate others to find new, creative solutions to a problem that continues to be a global epidemic.”

– Attiya Khan, Co-Director

 

The film was provided to NorWest by the National Film Board of Canada.
