3 Generations
3 Generations is a non-profit that documents stories of human rights abuses on film. They enable survivors of crimes against humanity to record their experiences as an act of healing, a call-to-action, and to create historical evidence. They amplify and honor each witness' voice by creating broad audiences: social media, film festivals, education outreach, screenings, partnerships, web-channels and more. Their goal is to influence the national dialogue and build momentum for social change.

3 Generations was originally created to document and raise awareness of the genocide in Darfur– the first genocide of the 21st Century. In 2005 we visited Sudan and Chad to collect testimonies. Struck by the horror of the situation in Darfur and the lack of international attention, we produced the feature documentary "The Devil Came on Horseback" and helped create its extensive engagement campaign.

Since 2005, our agenda has expanded. At its heart, however, our on-going campaign is a story-telling one that includes testimony from survivors from the Armenian genocide in 1915 to the present day. We curate and cross-reference the stories of survivors of different conflicts to show the common experience of genocide survivors. By collecting stories we honor the lives of those who died, help the healing process for survivors and make their stories available to the world, permanently.
