I vividly remember the morning I read these powerful words for the first time. It was a cold November afternoon and a friend of mine had shared it on Instagram. As I was reading, I glanced over at my son playing in the living room - he was 17 months old, and I started coming undone. My wife looked over at me and I couldn't speak, I just handed her the phone, and she also just came undone. These words had stuck with me for 4 years and they haven't let go of me. How can a man, who had suffered so much, have a such a spirit of resilience and grace?
Thank you Antoine Leiris for seeing the world unlike how most people see it - for showing a way that flows in the opposite direction of hate, and retaliation. Its words like yours that change the world. This film is a contemplative meditation on those words, be patient with it.
