.
Coexist examines Rwanda’s precarious and sensitive experiment in building reconciliation in varied settings across the country. The government strongly urges killers and survivors to come together in workshops, seminars,and healing groups where they’re often asked to confront each other and share their feelings.
.
The film explores if these emotionally explosive interactions can build peaceful coexistence and begin the process of rehumanization, where each individual can begin see the other as human again.

“Coexist is a project that began with my first visit to Rwanda in 2006. I saw the remarkable progress that many Rwandans had made in the 12 years since the genocide. Inspired to try to share their stories with a much broader audience, in the summer of 2008 I set out to make this documentary film and engage students here in the U.S to work to build coexistence around our country and the world.”   – Adam Mazo.

The work included short-form documentary pieces on issues in Rwanda as well as Uganda including: the war in northern Uganda, education of displaced children, and stories about the work of REACH. For the last decade he has worked as a journalist in the television news business.
