FILMFEST “Restoring Connection”

17. – 22.10. in Cinema Paradiso

We will be screening documentaries and feature films about Restorative Justice from around the world, based on true stories of pain and loss of connection.

People everywhere long to live in peace and harmony, and yet our human story is filled with examples of anguish and conflict that tear us apart, as individuals and as communities. As a response, our human need for justice – our desire to restore balance and fix what has been broken – keeps on arising.
In these inspiring films, we showcase different examples of how people involved or impacted by conflict choose to respond – in ways that honour healing and reconciliation over hatred and punishment.

Let’s vision and dream together!

• What does “justice” mean?
• What kind of a justice system we would like to have in Auroville, and how could we implement it?

Our hope with this FilmFest & Dialogue is to continue to explore the topic of justice in Auroville. After each film screening, we’ll host a facilitated dialogue space to deepen and reflect on our film experience.

Movie times: 4pm and 8pm, each followed by a facilitated dialogue space.

Join us for drinks and snacks – open to all FilmFest enthusiasts in the Town Hall “City Center Canteen”, until late after the last show!
