Romeo - Lorna Lowe


Filmmaker: Lorna Lowe

Born in Boston and raised in Haiti, Antonio’s nightmares of the abuse he suffered as a child drove him to work with violent men as an adult. Obsessed about saving men society would rather see incarcerated, Antonio takes an empathic view, going beyond weekly group sessions and into their neighborhoods and homes, blurring the line between counselor and friend. What is revealed over the next eight years, are the ironic parallels between his life and the men whose ideas about women and violence, he is working to change.
