BEYOND CONVERSION, 46min., New Zealand, Documentary
Directed by Loren Prendiville
BEYOND CONVERSION is an intimate look at the fight to ban conversion practices in Aotearoa. It follows a bill many thought would pass unanimously but was in-fact highly contested, prompting the largest number of public submissions in New Zealand’s legislative history. This powerful story is told through the voices of Kiwi survivors, who have laid themselves bare to shed light on the impacts of conversion practices. The film explores the complexities of this divisive issue, along with the spectrum of voices and opinions that came to light during the political process. BEYOND CONVERSION is a moving, nuanced conversation about religious freedom, personal identity and the meaning of choice.
