Feist Pledges $10,000 To Support A Documentary That Focuses On Violence Against Women

Canadian singer-songwriter Feist has ponied up some serious dough to help fund a new documentary from Attiya Khan.

The “1234”; recording artist pledged $10,000 this week to the Indiegogo campaign for A Better Man. The film will address the subject of violence against women and highlight the desire for change. Sarah Polley is as an executive producer for this documentary.

A Better Man will tell our story, while also bringing to light the incredible work people are doing with men who are hurting others,”; explains Khan, a survivor of intimate partner violence. “It has the power to strengthen the movement to end violence against women through a deeper focus on abusive men.”;

The campaign has currently raised one third of its $75,000 goal.

“The hidden dynamic of abuse is pervasive and is often shrouded by an uncomfortable politeness between witnesses and the details,”; said Feist on the film. “From the courageous position of a woman who’s had 20 years to consider what she endured and with a willingness to hear another version of the same experience, I believe this will be an important documentary and spark a conversation we will all benefit from.”;

The campaign launched on November 9 and is scheduled to close a minute before midnight on December 19. We have the campaign trailer below.
