Help make it happen for alum and director, Laura Farber’s (BA ‘06) documentary, WE ARE COLUMBINE. She, along with 4 other survivors of the 4/20/99 school shooting tell their story in this compelling doc. They are raising money for post production.
This film stems from a defining moment in my life, April 20, 1999. I was a freshman at Columbine High School. I was in the cafeteria. In the years since, all of us from the Columbine community have had to deal with that trauma. I made this documentary with four of my classmates who were willing to go back to Columbine and share their personal experiences. It’s our story told by us, not by outside observers. There’s no agenda, no political agenda. It’s not an investigation of a crime. It’s not trying to present these stories as factual events. It’s our individual memories, our truths. It’s about what we are saying, as much as it is about the fact that we are saying it. – Laura Farber
