“Coincidence is God’s way of remaining anonymous”, Albert Einstein once said. When We Were Bullies begins with a mind boggling ‘coincidence’ which ultimately leads the filmmaker to track down his fifth grade class, and the class’ teacher, to see what they remember of a bullying incident from 50 years ago. In a playful yet poignant way, Rosenblatt begins to understand his complicity and the bully in all of us. Using a mix of collage, conversations with his former colleagues, the wisdom of his teacher, and his own slippery voice-over narration, Rosenblatt constructs a moving reflection on our own capacity to be destructive. When We Were Bullies is a humorous and gentle meditation on the banality of evil.
