The Listening Room

The Listening Room

"There is a bit that’s gonna blow your mind. I’ll let you sit down and tell ya”

A stirring exploration of life, death and justice, The Listening Room features the true stories of five people whose lives were transformed by three moments of violence.

Years after trial and punishment, each one of them was given the chance to meet the person on the other side. This is the extraordinary story of what happened when they said yes.

“You’ve gotta really think about… hang on a minute, what do I wanna say? Do I wanna tell em I wanna strangle you, what do I wanna say?” 

By Harriet Madeley. Directed by Max Barton.
