A documentary short film by Jason Cohen


Through the power of Matthew and Tim’s story, Facing Fear helps viewers get a glimpse of some of the most painful and tragic aspects of being human as well as the most redemptive.

We have developed two guides to help support individuals, families, students, educators, groups and communities in creating thoughtful, caring, and productive conversations around how we grapple with trauma, forgiveness, and one another in a complex, imperfect society.
