A BETTER MAN (2017)

D: Attiya Khan, Lawrence Jackman | 79 min | 2017 | Canada | RATING: PG
Director and doc subject, Attiya Khan will attend in person.


SYNOPSIS: Over 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 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.
Partial proceeds from this screening will be donated to Geneva House and Take Back The Night- Sudbury.

Organizer

Sudbury Indie Cinema Co-op

Sudbury Indie Cinema is a not-for-profit co-op bringing world-class independent cinema to Northern Ontario from  various downtown Sudbury locations. We are mission-driven, not profit-driven. We select high-calibre, laudable films and films that give voice to lesser heard perspectives on the big screen. We also actively support other arts organizations and seek to support local homegrown filmmaking. We formed originally as a community response to the growing monopoly of Hollywood blockbusters on a skrinking number of large screens, back in summer 2013. We have since secured a lease to convert and repurpose part of a closed school into a single screen state-of-the-art digital cinema. We expect to open in 2017 at our own location but in the meantime we programme films from other screening venues.
