Beyond Right and Wrong

Free film screening for students and teachers

Location: Pat May Center-HEB ISD- 1849 Central Drive, Building B, Bedford, TX 76022
(Park by football field- building is behind HEB Administration)

In the stillness after conflict, after the blood dries and the screams fade, the memory of violence transforms survivors into prisoners of their own pain. How do whole societies recover from devastating conflict? Can survivors live—converse, smile, and even laugh—beside someone who blinded them, killed their parents, or murdered their children? Can victims and perpetrators work together to rebuild their lives? This life-changing documentary explores the intersections of justice and forgiveness as survivors heal from these tragedies.

Only snacks provided- please eat dinner before attending.
