This time – exceptionally on Tuesday (!!) – we show the movie “Beyond Punishment” that approaches the questions of guilt and punishment from a rather unusual perspective.
Tuesday, 10 January 2017
20:00 at the Capitol
Freedom is what you do with what has been done to you.
Three different countries and one case of deadly violent each. Three men who have killed and three families who have lost a beloved one. In our standard idea of guilt and punishment this means three who get punished and three who are meant to forget. No way to imagine the two sides will ever get closer. The film tells three times the impossible story: To meet your enemy, in thoughts, in messages, in real life. In Germany, in Norway, in the US.
After the movie we’ll have a discussion with Prof. Dr. Mario Gollwitzer, professor for psychology at Uni Marburg working on social justice, revenge and punishment.
We are looking forward to welcoming you!
