TIFF Long Take - Ep. 42: Where Does Hollywood Go After #MeToo?
How film can be used to make A Better Man
This week on TIFF Long Take, Rob and Geoff sit down with Steph Guthrie and Christine Kleckner, the producers of the new documentary A Better Man.
In the film, co-director Attiya Khan confronts her former partner about the violence that he inflicted on her during their relationship. A Better Man, which will be broadcast on TVO this December 6, has been hailed, not only as a brave and exceptional work of art, but also as a vehicle to better understand how systemic abuse is endemic to our culture — and our industry.
On this week’s episode, Guthrie and Kleckner speak to the watershed moment of Ronan Farrow’s New Yorker exposé on Harvey Weinstein, Khan’s decision to confront her abuser on camera, what can be learned from restorative justice, and where the conversation will now go after #MeToo.
