Beyond Right and Wrong; Stories of Justice and Forgiveness

It gives me great pleasure to announce the Bahrain Foundation for Reconciliation and Civil Discourse’s (BFRCD) next event: a screening of the highly acclaimed documentary Beyond Right and Wrong: Stories of Justice and Forgiveness.

Here are the details:

Time: 7:00 pm doors open, movie starts at 7:30 pm sharp. Date: Wednesday the 30th of January 2013
Location: Saar Cinema.

This film was first screened at the United Nations:

It tells the stories of people who both endured and perpetrated cruelty and aggression in the genocide in Rwanda, the violence in Israel/Palestine, and the “troubles” in Northern Ireland. This film focuses on extreme situations but is actually the human story of everyday possibilities in life.  After the blood has dried, treaties are negotiated and screams have turned to silence, victims and perpetrators face an uneasy and painful peace. All wounds have not healed. The eighty minute film portrays the resilience of humanity when facing the chasm between rage and acceptance.

The film promises to be truly extraordinary. The event is free and open to the public, but seats are limited, and will be given strictly on a first come first serve basis. Please be there on time!

Looking forward to seeing you inshallah.
