MCC's Holocaust, Genocide, and Human Rights Project invites you to the first installment in its annual Human Rights Film Series: Coexist. How do societies ravaged by genocide begin to heal? Can a person be forced to reconcile with those who killed her or his loved ones? In the 2014 documentary film Coexist, Rwanda’s unprecedented social experiment in government-mandated reconciliation is revealed for the first time through the eyes of a diverse range of survivors: victims, perpetrators, and those who bore witness to the 1994 genocide. What they share is breathtaking, heartbreaking, and inspired. Viewers are gripped and left brimming with questions. Running time is 53 minutes. Showing includes refreshments and discussion, and is free and open to the public.
