About the Event
Join Perth Women's Collective in partnership with Perth Film Society for this screening of 'A Better Man', followed by a Q&A and discussion, as part of PKVAWP's 16 Days of Activism.
'A Better Man' is a fierce, compassionate and searingly honest exploration of life after abuse.
During the two years they lived together as teenagers, Steve abused Attiya on a daily basis. She survived the racist insults – but his blows nearly killed her. 20 years later, Attiya has asked Steve to meet: she wants to know if he is willing to take responsibility for his violent actions.
Recording their conversations as they visit a domestic-violence counsellor, as well as their high school and the apartment they shared, 'A Better Man' tackles the issue of gender-based violence from a rarely seen angle. Despite its title, it resists catharsis or resolution to offer an intimate, raw and empowering reflection on how abuse continues to linger through both the survivor and the perpetrator’s lives, while Attiya seeks a different path towards healing and justice.
