Chemin Eugène Rigot 2E
in Geneva 1202
A film that shifts the conversation on violence against women
Filmmaker Attiya Khan documents her meeting with an abusive ex-boyfriend to show 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 is in their own relationships or as part of a broader movement for social change.
The documentary film (2017, 85 minutes, in English) will be followed by a panel discussion with:
Riccardo Bocco, Professor of Anthropology and Sociology, the Graduate Institute, Geneva (moderator)
Nicole Bourbonnais, Assistant Professor of International History, the Graduate Institute, Geneva
Rosemary McCarney, Ambassador, Permanent Mission of Canada to the United Nations in Geneva
Entry is free, but seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
