  • White Right: Meeting the Enemy. Documentary on the front line of the race wars in America, sitting down face-to-face with Neo-Nazis and fascists.
  • Behind the Curve. A documentary about believers in “flat earth theory” is also about science, community, rejection, resentment, and belonging. Watch the movie together and discuss the themes and implications.
