EXAMINING AND UNDERSTANDING THE MECHANISMS OF HATE

“A film that challenges, informs, and inspires.”

Mike Bochenek, Director of Policy, Amnesty International

Award-winning filmmaker, Mike Ramsdell spent more then six years embedded with White Supremacists, Christian Fundamentalists, Death Row inmates, Israeli and Palestinian combatants, and the US soldiers in Iraq.    Combining this first-person perspective with interviews from leading sociologists, psychologists, anthropologists and neuroscientists –  the film explores the common human mechanisms associated with hate, and how understanding these mechanisms can help us build a productive dialogue toward understanding and peace.

“Ramsdell, thank you for not only sharing your work, but encouraging a dialogue of understanding and hope. This is an incredible educational tool.”

– Sharifa Whip, University of Alabama

To maximize success and impact of this tool, we’ve worked with leading educators to create a comprehensive educational packet that includes:

  •  DVD of the award winning film
  • Introduction to the historical conflicts and concepts in the film
  • Discussion Guide outline to assist with the post-screening dialogue
  • Classroom exercises to take the ideas of the film from concept to reality
  • Full transcript of the film
  • Suggested further reading

And because we know there can be no more important place to begin this dialogue than in an educational environment, where budgets are particularly tight, we’ve reduced the cost of this package by 25% to ensure the dialogue takes place on as many campuses as possible.

Engaging in difficult dialogue is the work of our time. It is our cause to help start that dialogue on your campus.
