Actors work to present a far off story of genocide, but find it hitting closer to home than they expected. Where's the line between the past and the present, good intentions and painful reality? How do modern race relations in the US affect how we approach stories of the past? Both thought-provoking and funny, We Are Proud to Present will stay with you.
