(32 minutes) USA
Director/Producer: John Reilly
Why have there been so many bystanders to genocide and war crimes? Bystander
portrays three individuals who intervened to thwart the mass murder of
innocent victims as the crimes were unfolding, and frames these portraits
with riveting psychological experiments that demonstrate the scarcity
of moral courage.
John Reilly graduated from New York University's M.F.A. program in writing
in 2003. This is his first documentary.
