As We Forgive is the 2008 student documentary film by Laura Waters Hinson.


The film tells the story of two Rwandan women who come face-to-face with the neighbors who slaughtered their families during the 1994 genocide, and their personal journeys toward forgiveness. Featuring in-depth interviews with both survivors and murderers, As We Forgive provides an intimate, first-hand view of the encounters between genocide perpetrators and their victims’ families.
