Alt-Right: Age of Rage // The State of the Union

The State of the Union: In November, the United States heads into their mid-term elections, a decisive moment that will shape the future of the world’s most powerful country. Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema presents a series of films that take the temperature of a divided nation and try to better understand what is at stake for the years to come.

Get a front-line primer on the growing political polarization of America in the wake of the Trump presidency. One year into the election, the Alt-Right is on the rise and civil rights groups like the shadow collective Antifa and the NAACP are fighting back. Immersing us in both sides of the battle, filmmaker Adam Bhala Lough follows white supremacist leader Richard Spencer and his most resolute adversary, anti-fascist activist Daryle Lamont Jenkins, exposing the social turmoil spreading across the country. As tensions between the right and the left reach an all-time high, the two sides square off during the tragic events at the 2017 Charlottesville riots. Trigger warning: everything.
