“fierce, compassionate, searingly honest and beautiful”

Sarah Polley

When Attiya Khan was a teenager she lived with her boyfriend Steve for two years, during which time he abused her on a daily basis. 20 years later, Attiya and Steve arrange to meet and record their intimate conversations. Will Steve take responsibility for the abuse? When the film had its world premiere at Hot Docs, therapists were available for consultation in the lobby after the screening – a statement to how powerful this film is. A Better Man is truly remarkable documentary making. It’s a privilege that Attiya has allowed an audience to bear witnesses to her restorative justice.

This film is restricted to persons aged 15 and over unless accompanied by an adult.
