A Better Man (2017) – dir. Attiya Khan


Wednesday, March 07, 2018
15:30 to 17:00

On a hot summer night 22 years ago, 18-year-old Attiya Khan ran through the streets of Toronto, frightened for her life. She was fleeing her ex-boyfriend Steve, who’d been abusing her on a daily basis. Now, all these years later, Attiya has asked Steve to meet. She wants to know how he remembers their relationship and if he is willing to take responsibility for his violent actions. This emotionally raw first meeting, filmed by Attiya with Steve’s consent, is the starting point for A Better Man. A Better Man offers a fresh and nuanced look at the healing and revelation that can happen for everyone involved when men take responsibility for their abuse. Teachers bringing their students can request links to conversation guides designed specifically for the film (kathwarm@vaniercollege.qc.ca).
