Matt Duhamel Working on "Forgiveness" Documentary Film
December 23, 2013 (Salt Lake City, Utah)
After releasing his first documentary film, What Makes Me Tic?" documentary filmmaker Matt Duhamel and Metamora Films announces their next film subject: Forgiveness.
According to Duhamel, the film is deeply personal. Through interviews and sessions with a Life Coach, he decides to courageously reveal his past failures and attempts to work through his forgiveness issues in hopes to reconcile with my estranged daughter, Madison.
In addition to Duhamel's personal journey through forgiveness, the film includes professionals, psychologists, and religious leaders offering us a more practical approach and up to date understanding of the process of forgiving others and ourselves. In the film, Dr. Masi Noor, Senior Lecturer at Canterbury Christ Church University, discusses his latest research on the topic and most importantly answers questions about the “Forgiveness Toolbox”, a skills-based toolbox enabling individuals and groups to transform the impact of harm and violence and nurture peaceful co-existence. Marina Cantacuzino, Director of The Forgiveness Project, discusses her UK based charity that uses storytelling to explore how ideas around forgiveness, reconciliation and conflict resolution can be used to impact positively on people’s lives.
"The film is a fresh, updated look at the process of forgiveness. On the other hand, it’s not a film that’s full of fluff and unrealistic goals. “Finding Forgiveness” is honest in the fact that forgiving ourselves and others is a very difficult process and sometimes, impossible for some, " Duhamel states.
A late summer, 2014 release is planned. A IndieGoGo campaign has been set up in hopes to raise funds for the project:
