THE POLITICS OF HATE

New Release.


The inspiring story of Christian Picciolini, a former leader of the White Supremacist Movement now combatting hate, featured on 60 Minutes, CBS Evening News, CNN and MSNBC.
 

The film also features Mark Potok, the Senior Fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, our partner organization at the forefront of monitoring and combatting hate.

 

 

From the award-winning director Michael Perlman comes an incredibly timely film The Politics Of Hate that documents the last hundred years of hate in the USA and the interconnection between the American and European far right movements, supported by the Russia government.

From the popularity of fascism and the klan in the 1920’s and 30’s thru the backlash to Obama’s election that fueled the rise of hate groups emboldened by Trump’s presidency, the tragedy that resulted from the largest white supremacist march in decades that took place in Charlottesville and the ongoing migrant crisis that has swelled the ranks of the far right in Europe, the film examines remarkable similarities between then and now when great progress met a fierce reaction by those that felt threatened by changing demographics.

Christian Picciolini, a former leader of the American Nazi and White Supremacist Movement as well as the author of Romantic Violence, has been a featured expert on both CBS Evening News and CNN, explores how he and hundreds of thousands of others are recruited, their beliefs and how he now works through his NGO Life After Hate, to pull people out of hate groups.

The film also features Mark Potok, the Senior Fellow at the Southern Poverty Law Center, representing an organization at the forefront of monitoring and combatting hate as well as Menhaz Afridi, a Muslim American woman who serves as an advisor to the US Holocaust Museum and the Director of the Holocaust, Genocide and Interfaith Center at Manhattan College.

Proceeds from the film go to Southern Poverty Law Center.
