Rating:
R
Facing the Enemy is a 2003 documentary about forgiveness and grief. In October of 1984, a junior minister died in Brighton, England. His name was Sir Anthony Berry, and he was killed by a terrorist act when an IRA bomber decided to target a political conference. Berry was survived by a daughter, Jo Tuffnell. When she first heard the news, Tuffnell was grief-stricken, both by the loss of her father and by the violence and political bigotry behind the bombing. Eventually, Tuffnell let her anger and grief transform into activism. She traveled to Ireland to meet other victims of political bombings and work as a peacemaker in the conflicts between Catholics and Protestants. Her own loss allowed Tuffnell to connect and help fellow victims. However, Tuffnell's victory over grief faced a difficult test in 2000, when she decided to meet her father's killer face to face. The powerful meeting between the ex-bomber and the peacemaker has been captured as a documentary by filmmaker Paul McGuigan.moreless
