FST supports film on domestic abuse
June 13, 2017
Family Service Toronto is proud to support the screening of the feature film A Better Man this month at HotDocs Ted Rogers Cinema.
More than 20 years ago, Toronto-based Attiya Khan was in a physically abusive relationship with her then-boyfriend, Steve. Today, she’s a prominent feminist who has worked for women’s shelters across the U.S. and Canada.
Khan has teamed with local filmmaker Lawrence Jackman to create a unique documentary that aims to evolve the conversation around domestic abuse. Steve agrees to appear on camera to explicitly discuss the violence he inflicted on Attiya and their troubled relationship.
Among this year’s Hot Docs Festival’s most emotionally stunning films, A Better Man takes a brave and open-minded approach to processing trauma and healing.
