A Better Man

, -

Auditorium Ivan Pictet, Maison de la paix, Geneva

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:

  • Rosemary McCarney, Ambassador, Permanent Mission of Canada to the United Nations in Geneva

  • Nicole Bourbonnais, Assistant Professor of International History, the Graduate Institute, Geneva

  • Michal Swarabowicz,  PhD Candidate in International Law, the Graduate Institute, Geneva 

  • Jacqueline Coté, Public Relations Director, the Graduate Institute, Geneva (moderator)

Entry is free, but seating is on a first-come, first-served basis.
