HEALING FROM HATE: BATTLE FOR THE SOUL OF AMERICA
Starts September 18
Bolstered by the rise of Trump and the Alt Right, disenfranchised white Americans are becoming radicalized into white supremacy at an alarming rate.
HEALING FROM HATE takes a deep dive into the minds of men who gravitate toward white-supremacist hate groups. Focusing on the bold work of the group Life After Hate – an organization founded by former Skinheads and neo-Nazis now engaged in de-radicalizing violent extremists on the front lines – the film makes a powerful case that the men who join these groups are motivated less by ideology than by a desperate need to prove their manhood. From the director of the critically-acclaimed REQUIEM FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM: NOAM CHOMSKY AND THE PRINCIPLES OF CONCENTRATION OF WEALTH AND POWER, HEALING FROM HATE is at once a stunning document of racism and white-male grievance in America, and a powerful portrait of a group of people working together to de-radicalize hate groups and heal communities torn apart by white male insecurity, resentment, and rage.
