Faces of Violence

Armed violence is hard to define but easy to describe. The short documentary Faces of Violence: A Non-Fiction Story examines the many dimensions of violence and its implications for the development sector. In focusing on key risk factors and impacts of armed violence, it shows how it is fundamentally a development challenge. Faces of Violence features the stories of a former drug trafficker from Brazil and an ex-combatant from war-torn Southern Sudan. It highlights how both were once perpetrators of violence, then victims and ultimately, part of the solution to achieving lasting peace in their communities. Faces of Violence is a reminder of the poignant human stories behind the statistics, and a call to action for development practitioners around the world.
