This revealing documentary offers an unprecedented glimpse into the lives of a group of registered sex offenders living in an isolated Florida community. Allowing its subjects the opportunity to recount gut-wrenching personal stories unfiltered, Pervert Park makes a divisive choice: empathy over judgment. The debut feature from husband-and-wife team Frida and Lasse Barkfors is a compassionate portrait of society’s most stigmatized social pariahs and their struggle to break the cycle of silence and sexual abuse.
This screening will feature a Q&A with directors Frida Barkfors and Lasse Barkfors.
