Digging into American Hatred in Doc Film 'Healing from Hate' Trailer
"They knew that they wanted to help other guys get out." Freestyle Digital Media has released an official trailer for the documentary Healing from Hate, an acclaimed new film made by Peter D. Hutchinson. The film's original title is Healing From Hate: Battle for the Soul of a Nation and there's also a companion film called The Masculine Mystique that will be released separately. This acclaimed doc is an exploration into "the fate of the post-modern man - examining the root causes of hate group activity through the bold work of those battling intolerance." It's described in festival reviews as "a great film… required viewing for anyone who truly wants to understand the hatred that is running rampant in America and the world." This seems to focus more on how to overcome hate, and how to confront it - rather than why it exists in the first place. A compassionate story about the great healing power of love and what it takes to bring people back from hate.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Peter D. Hutchison's doc Healing from Hate, from YouTube:
With violent extremism on the rise, Healing From Hate examines the root causes of hate group activity through the bold work of those battling intolerance on front lines. Documenting a stunning year of hatred in America, the film follows ex-neo Nazis & Skinheads in their work to de-radicalize White Nationalists, and heal communities torn apart by racism - a deep dig into what's needed to return meaning, identity and tolerance to a generation of disenfranchised white men. Healing from Hate is directed by NYC-based documentary filmmaker Peter D. Hutchison, director of doc films Requiem for the American Dream and The Man Card: White Male Identity Politics from Nixon to Trump, as well as numerous other feature docs and the creator of a series of educational shorts. This just premiered at the DOC NYC Film Festival this fall. Freestyle DM will debut Hutchison's doc Healing from Hate direct-to-VOD starting January 22nd, 2021.
