About

In this film and discussion series we consider the representation of perpetrators in documentary and feature films. Key questions that we will explore include: what is meant by the term ‘perpetrator’; the legacy of perpetrators over the generations; how perpetrators narrate their own actions; the place of individual agency and social mobilization in defining a perpetrator; and, crucially, the implications of our interest in and fascination with perpetrators.
