Healing Justice, explores the causes and consequences of the current North American justice system and its effect on marginalized communities. The film walks back through the history of violence that has led to our current system, bringing into focus the histories of trauma – on a personal, interpersonal, community, and generational level. This powerful documentary addresses the school-to-prison pipeline, the need for comprehensive criminal justice reform, and the importance of healing and restorative practices.  Designed for dialogue, Healing Justice is meant to prompt questions and open conversations, exploring trauma, justice, and healing.

“‘Healing Justice’ provides the next critical step in the movement to eradicate racial biases within the justice system. It is an interactive tool through which the viewer is presented with the impact of trauma, the challenges of injustice and the possibilities offered by healing strategies. Participants engage in dialogue that inspires new questions and transformative re-visioning of the meaning of justice through learning strategies related to restorative/diversion programs and healing.”- Jeff Adachi, The Slanted Screen Director and San Francisco Public Defender
