"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 53-minute 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."
