The Upstander Project is a comprehensive documentary and educational outreach project created and based in Boston. Coexist is a film about government-mandated reconciliation efforts following the Rwanda genocide, told from the point of view of victims, perpetrators, bystanders, social commentators, and public officials. The film, Teacher’s Guide, and professionally-led teacher workshops serve as an entry-point to important conversations on how to cultivate forgiveness, compassion, and upstanding in our own lives.
