A Better Man

CAN | 2017 | 78min | 14A

“A Better Man documents a personal experiment for me and my abusive ex-partner – a step towards understanding and accountability.


By getting closer to the truth of what survivors experience, and why men choose to use violence, we can help to stop the abuse. I hope that sharing my personal search for justice and healing will contribute to the struggle to end domestic violence.” – Attiya Khan, Co-Director
