Misses the point
I have often wondered what the men and women among these “alt right” movements think, and why they think it. This documentary had ample opportunity to get answers to questions that millions of people want to know. But the interviewer makes it all about herself. She presents each question in a biased manner. She also fails to ask the questions in a manner that will leave the interviewee in a comfortable place for them to give the answer. Part of being an interviewer is to leave yourself out of the equation. The interviewer in this documentary spends too much time attempting to TELL these “alt right” activists, instead of giving them the floor and letting them either tell the world what we already (think) we know, or telling us something that we did not know. If you’re going to do a documentarty like this, the audience should learn something. I learned nothing from this. These “alt right” people are messed up, and they have fractured childhoods and histories, but this is information that we already knew or assumed, just judging by their actions. A better watch would be someone who goes undercover into one of these factions, to see what they do when they aren’t aware of cameras
A courageous and compassionate journey into the heart of America’s neo-Nazi movement
Director Deeyah Khan received a barrage of vicious threats from neo-Nazis after being targeted by right wing hate sites. This spurred her on to investigate the movement in more detail – effectively walking into the lion’s den. In this documentary, she asks white supremacists and members of the KKK asking a simple question ‘Am I your enemy?’ Her journey takes her across the United States, including marching with neo-Nazis at the infamous Charlottesville rally, at which protestor Heather Heyer was killed.
Khan has a natural warmth which makes all but the most stubborn of her interviewees warm to her. Her non-confrontational approach slips past the defenses of those she interviews, disorienting and unsettling them in ways that reveal more about them than aggressive questioning ever could. It’s a style that refuses to dehumanise its subjects, despite their violent and intolerant beliefs; instead she exposes the same kinds of fear and trauma underlying the hatred in her earlier film Jihad, where she talked to Islamist extremists. As in Jihad, it’s often those who have left the group-think of hate movements that provide the deepest insights.
Shocking and moving, this documentary not easy viewing. An essential and sensitive examination of one of the most dangerous political trends of the decade.
