Forgiveness: Stories Of Our Time

Crew
Directed by Johanna Lunn


Forgiveness: Stories of Our Time focuses on four individuals who have lived through events so painful and horrific they are unimaginable to most of us.

Lesley Parrott's young daughter was stalked, raped and strangled. Anne Marie Hagan's father was murdered by their next-door neighbor. Alan McBride's wife and eight others were killed in an IRA bombing in Belfast. Reverend Julie Nicholson's daughter was killed on the London underground in an al-Qaeda bombing in 2004. Through heartfelt interviews and archival footage, these are the stories of men and women as they absorb, cope with and attempt to move beyond brutal events in their lives.

In a world wracked by increasing violence and horror, Forgiveness: Stories of Our Time brings hope that there are other possibilities beyond blind revenge and that in forgiving others we can set ourselves free.

Reviews

Deeply moving.
- The Globe and Mail

a groundbreaking documentary.
- Hollywood Reporter

This is a powerful film and although it's heart wrenching and difficult to watch in some points, it delivers by doing what good documentaries ought to do; it makes the viewer think.
- Vitality Magazine
