Film Screening: Beyond Right and Wrong

Wednesday, April 30, 7:00 PM
Venue: ATEC Lecture Hall
Ticket: Free
Season: 2013-14

In director Lekha Singh’s fiercely dramatic, yet undeniably inspiring documentary, Beyond Right & Wrong: Stories of Forgiveness and Justice, she explores the process of forgiveness through the scope of some of the world’s most devastating conflicts. In the film we see individuals come face to face with the very people that took their loved ones away forever. Stories range from Northern Ireland, to the disputed land between Israel and Palestine, and lastly the Rwandan genocide. What remains singular among these terrible incidents is not the justice served or severity of the atrocity, but rather the level of dialogue and discourse reached between both perpetrator and victim.

 

Fine-art photographer Lekha Singh’s work offers insight into the human condition around the world. She contributed photographs to National Geographic’s The Other Side of War: Women’s Stories of Survival and Hope, and her photography books include Call to Love: In the Rose Garden with Rumi, Bhutan, and Pop-Up Pianos. She also executively produced the documentaries Square and Midway. Singh made her directorial debut with the documentary filmBeyond Right & Wrong.
