This is a must see documentary about domestic abuse and the power to change.
“This compelling film puts an uncompromising spotlight on the voices that are rarely heard – the male perpetrators of family and domestic violence. A documentary from Australia that tracks the Men’s Behaviour Change Program as they attempt to take responsibility for their violence, change themselves – and perhaps heal fragile bonds with their loved ones. Through it, the audience is taken on a high stakes, extraordinary journey as the men reach for the simple and immeasurable privilege of being a ‘Dad’.”
This event starts at noon, and we will start the film at approximately 12:15pm to give people time to settle in and for a brief introduction. Feel free to bring a light lunch and refreshment of your choice. The film is 80 mins in length, and following the presentation those interested can stay for a discussion about the documentary. It’s a great piece and I’m sure there will be lots to talk about afterwards!
