As We Forgive – Documentary

March 27, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Could you forgive a person who murdered your family? This is the question faced by the subjects of As We Forgive, a documentary about two Rwandan women coming face-to-face with the men who slaughtered their families during the 1994 genocide. Overwhelmed by an enormous backlog of court cases, the government returned over 50,000 genocide perpetrators back to the communities they helped to destroy. Without the hope of full justice, Rwanda turned to a new solution: Reconciliation.

In As We Forgive, director Laura Waters Hinson and narrator Mia Farrow explore the lives of four neighbors once caught in opposite tides of a genocidal bloodbath, chronicling their extraordinary journey from death to life through forgiveness.
