Hate: A Journey to the Dark Heart of Racism

The ninth annual Athens Jewish Film Festival is six weeks away, but organizers are offering a pre-fest sample with Hate, by Israeli journalist Nadav Eyal. Weaving accounts told by victims of anti-Semitism and xenophobia with those told by perpetrators, the documentary explores the resilience of racism and hate culture. The film will be followed by a panel discussion on current events with Dr. Cas Muddle, associate professor at the School for Public and International Affairs at UGA, and Dr. Dawn Bennett-Alexander, associate professor at the UGA Terry College of Business. The festival begins Mar. 19 with screenings of Dough, Deli Man, The Last Mentsch, Apples from the Desert, Zemene and more at Ciné.
