Producer: Jay Rosenblatt

“Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous.” – Albert Einstein

When We Were Bullies begins with a mind-boggling “coincidence” from 25 years ago, which ultimately leads the filmmaker to track down his fifth-grade class (and fifth-grade teacher) to see what they remember of a bullying incident from 50 years ago. In a playful yet poignant way, he begins to understand his complicity — and the bully in all of us.
