When We Were Bullies (2022)

In When We Were Bullies, a coincidence leads filmmaker Jay Rosenblatt to track down his fifth-grade class and teacher to examine their memory of and complicity in a bullying incident 50 years before. It’s a riveting examination of bullying, memory and accountability.

The HBO short documentary premiered at Sundance and was nominated for an Oscar. 

The Daily Beast calls the “35-minute gem” and “a candid confrontation of an old wound that’s never quite healed.”
