The Politics of Hate

The Politics of Hate

From award-winning director Michael Perlman comes The Politics of Hate, a documentary film that explores the current Western political climate, chronicling the rise of the far-right in the United States and Europe and giving alarming insights into the ways the alt-right movement operates.

It examines the interconnection between fascist ideologies in the U.S. and Germany that led to the Holocaust straight through to the white supremacist marches in Charlottesville. Along the way, the film tells the inspiring story of Christian Picciolini, a former leader of the American white supremacist skinhead movement now combating hate, and also features Mark Potok, Senior Fellow at Southern Poverty Law Center.

"Eloquent, skillfully connecting the dots…The Politics of Hate offers a salutary warning that our present political climate could lead to disastrous consequences. Recommended.”
