Facing the Demons

Leave a comment

Facing the Demons , by Aviva Ziegler , is produced in Australia and about the process of Restorative Justice in a really heartrending situation. Terry O’Connell, the policeman in charge of the process, guides both victims and perpetrators into some sense of positive path from what was a senseless, thoughtless, really violent crime. It is not at all easy viewing, but I feel so much better for having seen it. Unfortunately we have to learn to deal with this sort of behaviour and Restorative Justice is a means by which we can hope to create some positive, powerful change. Study guides for the film are available here.
