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.
One year later, for the first time, the film will be screened in a prison, with an audience of inmates and workers. The initiative is organised by our former Board member Beata Czarnecka-Dzialuk who will take care of introducing and discussing the film with the audience (Warsaw, 27 October). 21 inmates agreed to attend this initiative together with one educator, one mediator and prison guards.
The film will be screened with Polish subtitles thanks to the work done by Janusz Kaźmierczak from the Fundacja Pracownia Dialogu (EFRJ members volunteered to subtitle the film in 15 languages!). Beata and her colleagues at Gdańsk University are part of the local organising team of the EFRJ Summer School 2019 (22-26 July) on child-friendly RJ. For more info click here.
This is one of the many screenings that are taking place across the world since the launch during the RJ Week 2017. Only during that week the film was screened in 68 different venues in 26 countries and reached about 3000 people from different fields of expertise (e.g. mediators, lawyers, psychologists, criminologists, probation officers, prison staff, policemen, artists, researchers, policy officers, educators, youth workers, activists…).
