WHITE RIGHT: MEETING THE ENEMY is a documentary which focuses on the rise of white supremacist movements in the United States. Filmmaker Deeyah Khan, a Muslim woman, spent time with leaders of white nationalist groups, going to meetings and rallies, including the August 2017 rally in Charlottesville, VA. She had a simple question “Is it possible for me to sit with my enemy and for them to sit with theirs?” The answer is complex and beautifully rendered in her film.

This film is free and open to the public.
