Wilson College To Present Documentary About Hate March 22

All members of the community are invited to attend a free showing of “Anatomy of Hate: A Dialogue for Hope” – a documentary film inspired by the events of Sept. 11, 2001 – and explore answers to the question of why we hate with the film’s director afterward. The event will begin at 6 p.m. Thursday, March 22, in the Brooks Science Complex auditorium.

Following the 9-11 attacks, director Mike Ramsdell went on a six-year odyssey to explore the reasons people hate. During that time, he worked with unprecedented access to white supremacists; Christian fundamentalists who had an anti-gay agenda; and in the Middle East with Muslim extremists, Palestinians fighting the Intifada, Israeli settlers and soldiers, and U.S. soldiers in Iraq.

The film has received many awards, including the designation of “Best Political Documentary” at the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival in 2009 and the “Audience Choice Award” at the Atlanta DocuFest. It also was an official selection for the Boston International Film Festival.

The March 22 program is sponsored by Wilson’s dean of the faculty, offices of student development and residence life, the Diversity Team, Women’s Studies Advisory Group and multiple faculty and staff across campus.
