1991 / 78min / 16mm

DIRECTOR: ANNE BOHLEN, KEVIN RAFFERTY AND JAMES RIDGWAY

Introduced by Kevin Rafferty and Anne Bohlen

Working with co-directors Bohlen and Village Voice political correspondent Ridgeway, the latter whose
nonfiction book inspired the film, Rafferty investigates the various white supremacist subcultures at large in America, focusing on a gathering of neo-Nazis, Ku Kluxers, and right-wing conspiracy buffs in Cohoctah Township, Michigan, replete with workshops, lectures, and plenty of talk about the white ethnostate and the coming race war. Proof positive that the recently raised profile of the so-called alt-right doesn’t signify anything new. “The filmmakers use no voice- over narration. They allow people and events to speak for themselves... First-rate journalism.”—The New York Times
