Film: On Compassion



Would I have done things differently if I were in your shoes? If I were in the totality of your circumstances? When we look into the eyes of ‘the other’ – without looking away – the labels start to come off. The question “What’s it like to be you?” is a powerful starting point for building bridges between people.

This film was premiered as part of an online symposium on the theme of compassion. The live-streamed program included a keynote speech by Charles Eisenstein and a presentation from filmmaker Fritzi Horstman of the Compassion Prison Project. To watch a recording of the symposium click HERE.
