White Right: Meeting the Enemy

The Utah Film Center presents: 

In this Emmy-winning documentary, acclaimed Muslim filmmaker Deeyah Khan meets U.S. neo-Nazis and white nationalists including Richard Spencer face to face and attends the now-infamous Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville as she seeks to understand the personal and political motivations behind the resurgence of far-right extremism in the U.S.

Speaking with fascists, racists and proponents of alt-right ideologies, Deeyah attempts to discover new possibilities for connection and solutions. As she tries to see beyond the headlines to the human beings, her own prejudices are challenged and her tolerance tested. When she finds herself in the middle of America’s biggest and most violent far right rally in recent years, Deeyah’s safety is jeopardized. Can she find it within herself to try and befriend the fascists she meets?

With a U.S. president propagating anti-Muslim propaganda, the far-right gaining ground in German elections, hate crime rising in the UK, and divisive populist rhetoric infecting political and public discourse across western democracies, White Right: Meeting the Enemy asks why. The film is an urgent, resonant and personal look at race wars in America.

Cracked Up

Post-film Q&A with director Michelle Esrick, moderated by KUER RadioWest host Doug Fabrizio.

In Cracked Up we witness the impact that childhood trauma can have over a lifetime through the incredible story of award-winning actor, comedian, master impressionist and Saturday Night Live star Darrell Hammond. Darrell is famous for his impressions of Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, Sean Connery and more, but few know his true story and the suffering he endured. Darrell performed brilliantly on live TV, but behind the scenes he struggled with debilitating flashbacks, self injury, alcohol and drugs and once was taken out of SNL in a straight jacket. Darrell was misdiagnosed for 40 years with different mental illnesses and put on a long list of medications. After a suicide attempt, Darrell finally met the doctor who gave him the proper diagnosis of “childhood trauma”. Courageously transparent, Darrell takes us through his past and present day experiences with incredible resilience, vulnerability, wisdom and humor.

Cracked Up will be a rallying cry to join a movement that is transforming our communities one by one to become trauma informed. The science is clear – toxic stress in childhood changes the architecture of the developing brain creating ill health downstream. Darrell’s courageous story of hope will not only move, entertain and inspire, it will break down barriers of stigma and move us all closer to better prevention and treatment with understanding and compassion.

Free Film & Food - "Birth of the Living Dead"

Viewer discretion is advised. Some content in this video may be objectionable. This video contains violent images. Some language in this video may be offensive. This video contains nudity. In 1968, a young college dropout named George A. Romero directed Night of the Living Dead, a low-budget horror film that shocked the world, became an icon of the counterculture, and spawned a zombie industry worth billions of dollars that continues to this day. Birth of the Living Dead shows how Romero gathered an unlikely team of Pittsburghers, policemen, iron workers, teachers, ad men, housewives, and a roller rink owner to shoot a revolutionary guerrilla-style film that went on to become a cinematic landmark, offering a profound insight into how our society worked in a singular time in American history. Free refreshments will be provided. Costumes encouraged for a costume contest. No masks, no weapons, or other props that might be deemed dangerous. https://www.facebook.com/events/500384713873071/
