While completing the memoir, Coffee Shop God, Thérèse was drawn to the story and voice of her brother's killer. She questioned what was his life like before the night he shot Steve? What is his life like now in prison, and what will life be like for him once he is released? Thérèse Bartholomew's film, The Final Gift, seeks to answer these questions and to make sense of the tragedy that will forever link her to the young man who killed her brother. The film addresses universal ideas of forgiveness and redemption as well as the larger societal questions how do we make peace with crime, support the victims, and restore the offenders? USA, 2012, 75 min., color, Blu-ray | Director: Thérèse Bartholomew
See the new trailer for How The Light Gets In, this in-production documentary that follows the descendants of Nazis and Holocaust survivors as they come together to find their way out of despair, guilt, grief, anger and fear; in the hope that by recounting their experiences they can guide countless others suffering around the world today, whose children will continue to carry the burden and pain unless it is transformed.
