Should we have sympathy for pedophiles?

 

Can we understand pedophiles by humanising them? How much of trauma in our early years is imprinted into ourselves as we become adults?

Lollipop draws parallel the psychological trauma of a man abused in his youth, to the stunted and perverted growth of a nation.

Watch ‘Lollipop’ by Namron (Malaysia):

Viewer discretion advised: Contains graphic and disturbing scenes of (self) and child abuse.

‘Lollipop’ was part of the 15 Malaysia short film project commemorating Malaysia’s independence in 2009.

Namron is a Malaysian actor-director who has been involved in many productions, some with more wretched stories others, but all equally thought provoking for the film audience. Here’s a snapshot of his work from an article about his 2013 film ‘Psiko: Thief of Heart’.
