Community Justice Initiatives extended an invitation to the Late Fragment team to screen at the historical King Street Theatre in downtown Kitchener as part of National Restorative Justice Week 2008. To end a symposium for professionals in the Restorative Justice field, an art display, and an awards banquet, we screened Late Fragment to an inspired and inspiring audience.
After a successful year of festival screenings around the world, it seemed most appropriate to end our year with such an audience. After all, it was the same community workers and Restorative Justice advocates that inspired the story of the film in the first place. Anita Doron, Tina Santiago and Jeff Parazzo, introduced the film and welcomed audience members to join in a performative audience cut. Audience members were eager to participate and braved the hot seat.
The credits were welcomed with an enthusiastic applause. The biggest complement we could have ever received came from one audience member: “The film stayed true to the every day work that we do here. Thank you for making this film.”
Special thanks goes out to Judah Oudshoorn, Revive Service Coordinator, Mark
Yantzi, Executive Director, Community Justice Initiatives, Jennifer Davies,
Revive Program Coordinator and Sandra Reimer, Writer/Communication Strategist for their enthusiasm and support.
