    When We Were Bullies

    Directed by Jay Rosenblatt
    USA/Germany | 35 minutes |

What begins with a mind-boggling “coincidence” from 25 years ago, leads the filmmaker to track down his 5th-grade class and teacher to see what they remember of a bullying incident from 50 years ago. In a playful and poignant fashion, he begins to understand his complicity in the event... and the bully in all of us.

In competition for Best Documentary Short.
