|The Power of Forgiveness
A film by Martin Doblmeier
78 minutes, documentary, color, English, 2007
To forgive someone can be simple. But this simple act can have powerful consequences – and may lead to a personal and spiritual transformation.
Recently, the study of forgiveness has come into its own. Researchers are examining the psychological and physical effects of forgiveness under an amazingly wide variety of conditions, ranging from petty insults to sexual assault to 9/11. Clinicians now help guide people to forgive transgressions and get on with their lives.
From Ground Zero to Northern Ireland to the Amish countryside, The Power of Forgiveness explores this important concept, and reveals how forgiveness can transform your life.
Featuring Elie Wiesel (Nobel Laureate, Holocaust survivor and Oprah Book Club author); Marianne Williamson (spiritual activist and author of Healing the Soul of America) Thich Nhat Hanh (Buddhist teacher, author and peace activist); and Thomas Moore (author of the bestselling Care of the Soul).

"A healing message." - Christian Science Monitor
"At a time when we see so much evil, we are called upon to have the moral grandeur and spiritual audacity to believe in good, to proclaim it, to stand in conviction, to take the people who truly do evil and, yes, hold them accountable. But to nevertheless stand for the possibility of human redemption that turns even the hardest hearts." - Marianne Williamson
