Hard to believe that it's been a year since I've posted anything- but I have a good excuse. I had an opportunity to work on an important documentary for Chance Films, directed by my good friend, Leslie Neale. From the website, this is a synopsis of this remarkable documentary:
UNLIKELY FRIENDS documents victims of brutal crimes who, through forgiveness, unexpectedly become friends with their perpetrators.
Finding a criminal justice system that has left them empty and unsupported, these victims of unspeakable crimes forgive out of a deep need to heal themselves, which in turn motivates the perpetrator to fully account for their actions and thereby begin the process of true rehabilitation.
These relationships, so unfathomable for most of us, open our thinking to new possibilities of how to transform a system ensconced in punishment and retribution to one of restorative justice that is based in humanity.
Please visit the website to learn more about the film, or to donate to help Leslie get this film distributed to as wide an audience as possible. Thank you!
