HEALING FROM HATE

BATTLE FOR THE SOUL OF A NATION

EXAMINING THE ROOT CAUSES OF HATE GROUP ACTIVITY AND FOLLOWING EFFORTS BY FORMER EXTREMISTS TO DE-RADICALIZE WHITE NATIONALISTS

From filmmaker Peter Hutchison a director of the critically-acclaimed documentary Requiem for the American Dream

Healing From Hate examines the root causes of hate group activity through the bold work of those battling intolerance on the front lines, featuring Life After Hate, an organization founded by former Skinheads and neo-Nazis to help others exit hate groups. Documenting a stunning era of hatred in America from Trump, to Charlottesville, to Parkland, Healing From Hate follows these unique reformers in their work to de-radicalize White Nationalists, transform attitudes of intolerance, and heal communities torn apart by racism.


Having been provided with exclusive access, Healing From Hate follows these counselor/activists in their crusade against violence and intolerance – through community & family engagement, as well as direct “intervention” with radicalized youth – experiencing the conflict of their struggles firsthand.

“A well-filmed, no-holds-barred, raw masterpiece defining the causes and solutions for America’s ugliest disease: racism. The information and testimonies revealed are stronger than written case studies in any psychology book. A must-see for both victims and perpetrators of hate.”
— Daryl Davis, Activist and Author of Klan-destine Relationships: A Black Man’s Odyssey in the Ku Klux Klan

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

“I’ve had the privilege of spending the past several years working with anti-hate activists Life After Hate – a group of former neo-Nazis and Skinheads now working to de-radicalize White Nationalists (although they prefer the term “re-humanize”), and provide education & support for families & communities battling on the front lines of hate.”

“When I embarked on the project – initially envisioned as an examination of the ‘crisis of masculinity’ in American – Trump had yet to settle into the Oval Office.  Although the warning signs were surely there, I could never have anticipated what lay ahead in the form of Charlottesville, the rise of the Alt Right, executive branch-endorsed xenophobia & intolerance, and a truly shocking rise in hate crimes – let alone the dramatic ascendance of the Black Lives Matter movement.”

“Now Nationalism and extremist hate crimes have been catapulted to the world stage – from the tragic anti-Semitic attack in Pittsburgh, to the brutal assault upon Muslim worshippers in Christchurch, NZ, to the senseless targeting of Hispanics in El Paso – along with a very public debate about who we aspire to be as a people. It was my good fortune to find myself in the company of this extraordinary group of individuals, committed towards creating a powerful force for good, instead of merely cursing the darkness.”

“It’s been an honor to work with and learn from such an inspiring group of people – not to mention having been given the opportunity to tell their remarkable story. In the midst of disturbing and uncertain times, they’ve shown me – time and time again – that there’s a hopeful way forward.  I believe this film captures and conveys that crucial message and spirit.”

– Peter Hutchison, Director
