Deeyah Khan has delivered the most powerful documentary film, on the resurgence of white nationalism and the people behind it, that you will see all year.
If courage could be sold, Deeyah would bag hers and sell it by the gram for a very long time. Her new film has her engaging some of the most vocal entities of racist movements across the USA and finding the humans inside, and even more surprisingly, forcing them to examine themselves. The results are nothing less than brilliant, and her film creates a narrative bridge from which resolution appears completely possible.
Not once does Deeyah compromise herself, while bringing her subjects to the edge of their own vulnerability, and always coming across as a loving explorer. This is a must see for anyone who believes anything.
