On the occasion of the international #rjweek 2017, the EFRJ launched the film A CONVERSATION (No Theatre 2017) based on a theatre play where two families engage into a dialogue after the rape and murder of a young girl. During that week, the film, which has been subtitled in 15 languages by our members, was screened in 68 different venues in 26 countries and reached about 3000 people coming from different fields of expertise (e.g. mediators, lawyers, psychologists, criminologists, probation officers, prison staff, policemen, artists, researchers, policy officers, educators, youth workers, activists…).
In 2018 many more screenings took place! Among others, EFRJ member Prof. Dobrinka Chankova and blogger Elena Evstatieva organise a screening in cooperation with Center for Mediation and Agreements at the Sofia Regional Court (27 September).
One of the co-organisers, wrote us: “Prof. Dobrinka Chankova made an introduction to the film and its story. Discussion after the film was focused mainly to the feelings of audience and questions about the facilitator and his role in the story. It was really impressive to see how the audience (composed by mediators, lawyers, judges, and prosecutors) reacted and reflected on the story and conferencing process. Even after a few days there are individuals who continue to discuss the film with me, and by phone.”
