Summary
The Last Survivor is an award winning, feature-length documentary film that presents the stories of genocide Survivors and their struggle to make sense of tragedy by working to educate a new generation, inspire tolerance and spark a civic response to mass atrocity crimes. Following the lives of survivors of four different genocides and mass atrocities - The Holocaust, Rwanda, Darfur, and Congo. The Last Survivor presents a unique opportunity to learn from the lessons and mistakes of our past in order to have a lasting social impact on how we act collectively in the face of similar issues today. Having shot on location in five countries across four continents, the film focuses on the universality of the horror of genocide - combating the misguided notion that genocide is something that happens "over there." Rather, the film asks its audience to consider genocide as an evil that has occurred on nearly every single continent and one that affects all of us as human beings. In the end, The Last Survivor is above all else an intimate meditation on how one begins to pick up the pieces of a broken life after experiencing such tragedy.
