"I recommend the 'Acting Together' documentary to all involved or having an interest in transitional justice."
Richard Goldstone

"'Acting Together' will shift perspectives and change lives. It could transform the trajectory of human conflicts."
– Dr. Michelle LeBaron, University of British Columbia School of Law

"We in Northern Ireland take comfort in watching this film, in knowing we are not alone in this journey; there are many more cultures emerging out of conflict, genocide and war.....we have new tools to help us excavate our truths and our troubled pasts, to speak to them and to dare envision a future where our broken world will be healed."
– Pauline Ross, Director of Derry Playhouse, Northern Ireland
