About the Film

The Last Survivor is a character-based, feature-length documentary film that presents the stories of genocide Survivors and their struggle to make sense of tragedy by working to educate, motivate and promulgate a civic response to mass atrocity crimes, with a focus on awareness, prevention and promoting social activism and civic engagement.  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 lasting social impact on how we act collectively in the face of similar issues today.

“This film is of tremendous importance, profundity, and speaks so much to the pressing issues around genocide, the aftermath of genocide, and honoring the strength and fortitude of survivors of genocide that the HPA has been working on since we began and that we continue to work on.”

“... staggeringly powerful...”

“The Last Survivor is a lovely, well-made tapestry of a film that I would compare to films like War/Dance and The Devil Came on Horseback (yes, it is that good)...”
