Liberty Victoria is once again very proud to be promoting one of the films at HRAFF this year and taking part in a post film panel discussion.
The film is "Pervert Park". An issue often considered too difficult to address, Pervert Park carefully explores the daily life of residents at Florida Justice Transitions, a halfway home to 120 registered sexual offenders. In a concerted effort for criminal rehabilitation, residents attend counseling sessions that examine their personal histories, shedding light on problematic elements of incarceration, reintegration and unshakeable stigma. First time feature-filmmaking duo Frida and Lasse Barkfors bravely tackle this subject with equal parts maturity and delicate intimacy. This bold, innovative and important documentary neither demonises nor sympathises with its subjects, but rather provides a deeper context and contemplation of an issue too often ignored.
In a post film panel discussion, Liberty Victoria's immediate past President and Criminal justice advocate Jane Dixon QC and Feminist and women’s rights activist Clementine Ford will help audience members digest the highly evocative themes of this film.
