“The ‘Apology Line’ is where members of the public can anonymously confess to absolutely anything, over the phone.
Inspired by the original apology project in New York, the apologies are uncomfortably honest, sometimes funny, occasionally shocking, but always fascinating.”
Very interesting short film – topic, audio and video – but I find the confessions rather cowardly… assuming the people are calling the line to apologize anonymously in lieu of confessing and apologizing to the people they harmed with their actions. However, it is powerful none the less, and a rare insight into human hearts.
