Documentary on restorative justice

A favorite reader spotted an interesting looking documentary about restorative justice airing tonight at 8pm on MSNBC entitled "Beyond Conviction."  At this link is a commentary from the director, which has this introduction:

This documentary tells the story of two survivors of horrific crimes on a journey toward healing and resolution. The film follows participants through a program in which victims of the most violent crimes confront the perpetrators.  In the essay below, the director shares her experience making the film.

This official website indicates that the documentary has received a number of film festival awards.  My TiVo is set.  The official website also has a nice collection of restorative justice links here.

It was real a tear jerker. No kidding. Real tears. Most amazing is how it seemed to free and take a great burden off the two women who visited the inmates.
