Go ‘Beyond Right and Wrong’ Oct. 1 at Scottsdale Civic Center Library

A powerful film about conflict and conciliation will be screened in Scottsdale Oct. 1 followed by a discussion with someone whose story is featured.

In “Beyond Right & Wrong: Stories of Justice and Forgiveness,” victims of three devastating conflicts — the Rwandan Genocide, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the Troubles in Northern Ireland — struggle to forgive without sacrificing their need for justice.

Auditorium doors open at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 1, at the Scottsdale Civic Center Library (lower level), 3839 N. Drinkwater Blvd.

The film begins at 6 p.m. Admission is free; the film is rated PG-13 with some images of violence.

Jo Berry, whose story is featured in the film, will participate in a discussion after the screening.
