WE ARE COLUMBINE

Gus, Jaimi, Zach, Amy and Laura seek to help others understand that the name “Columbine” means much more than a single event that occurred on an April day in 1999. “We are Columbine” is an attempt to express the inexpressible: Those who have called Columbine home during the last 15 years share something that cannot be effectively articulated in other words.

“We are Columbine” is a powerful way to communicate our shared sense of belonging to these people and this place.

Though each of our paths is unique, we share common bonds of tragedy and trauma, hope and healing, connection and loneliness, darkness and light.

"We are Columbine" acknowledges residual trauma, but also highlights four individual journeys toward healing and engaging with life. By carefully honoring each person's experience--via a return visit to Littleton and intimate one-on-one interviews--this film shares a deeply personal look at the inherent complexity of life impacted by violence and loss at a young age. "We are Columbine" offers unprecedented access and an insider's perspective on the healing power of shared stories. Though each story told is unique, they all share common bonds of tragedy and trauma, hope and healing, connection and isolation, darkness and light.

This film seeks to help others understand that the name "Columbine" means much more than a single event that occurred on an April day in 1999.
