Summary

When a group of actors gathers together to give a presentation on a distant genocide, they realize that summaries based on history books aren’t nearly enough to capture the complexity of human extermination—or human interaction. In We Are Proud to Present a Presentation About the Herero of Namibia, Formerly Known as South-West Africa, tells the story of what happens when in an effort to dig deeper,the nobly intentioned actors crash into their own simmering fears and unconscious bigotry, coming face to face with the potential for brutality in all of us.
