We have been hot summer night 22 years ago, 18-year-old Attiya Khan ran through the streets, frightened for her life. She was fleeing her ex-boyfriend Steve, who’d been abusing her on a daily basis.
Now, Attiya has asked Steve to meet. She wants to know how to remember their relationship and she is willing to take responsibility for violent actions.
This emotionally raw first meeting, filmed by Attiya with Steve’s consent, is the starting point for A Better Man . The beginning of a new beginning in Attiya ‘s own recovery process – an important starting point for Steve. For the first time ever, he talks about abuse and cracks.
The Coalition To End Violence Against Women is hosting a free screening on Monday, March 19th at the FirstOntario Performing Arts Center Film House. An hour long panel discussion will follow. Check out the trailer below.
