I am making a documentary called A Better Man that is based on a conversation I had with an ex-partner who physically abused me over 20 years ago. We lived together when we were teenagers.

My personal experience, my professional life, and my heart tell me that empowering men to change must be part of the picture. Let's step up and make it happen.
