Why forgiveness is imperative in the modern world

Another fascinating exploration of the relationship between aggressors and their victims, following the staggering documentary The Act of Killing, comes in the form of Beyond Right And Wrong.

 

This Friday, a screening plus live Q&A session takes place at the Lexi Cinema in aid of The Forgiveness Project, a UK-based charity that uses storytelling to explore ideas around forgiveness, reconciliation and conflict resolution and how they can be used to impact positively on people’s lives.

 

Interviewing people on both sides of a cross-section of global conflicts – Rwanda, Northern Ireland and Israel/Palestine – the film illuminates the difficult act of forgiveness in the most extreme circumstances and calls into question the concept of justice in the 21st-century. Arresting, thought-provoking and eye-opening, it will no doubt stimulate debate on this perpetually current topic. The screening will be followed by an equally thought-provoking discussion with Marina Cantacuzino, Forgiveness Project Founder and Jo Berry, whose father Sir Anthony Berry was killed in the bombing of the Conservative Party Conference in 1984. Enlightening, important – and all in aid of a good cause.
