During the Restorative Justice Week in 2019 we are screening the documentary ‘Je ne te voyais pas’ (I Did Not See You) directed by François Kohler. The film offers a unique insight into the situation of victims, offenders and into the process of restorative justice. The film will be officially released in December 2019 – so this is special opportunity to see it.
The screening will be followed by a discussion with the director, François Kohler.
“More focused on the act committed than on the needs of those involved, penal justice has certain limitations. The film explores the difficult connection between victims trying to rebuild their lives and perpetrators disposed to taking responsibility. Restorative justice encourages the parties to manage their conflicts themselves, helping them to free themselves from their status. An intimate, emotional film in which the barriers between reality and fiction fade away.”
In French & German with English subtitles.
Produced by P.S Production, Instant films, Radio Télévision Suisse, Arte.
