"The impulse to dismiss extremists as unreachable fanatics is strong and at times justifiable. But perhaps it's not always the most effective means of combatting them. Deeyah Khan has decided to engage them directly as human beings... The results are stunning."- Vox

In WHITE RIGHT, Muslim filmmaker Deeyah Khan meets U.S. neo-Nazis and white nationalists such as 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, Khan attempts to discover new possibilities for connection and solutions. 

With a U.S. president propagating anti-Muslim propaganda, the far-right gaining ground, hate crime rising internationally, 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.
" Deeyah Khan is an extraordinary filmmaker. She uses hard and soft skills to discover what drives such hatred and forces people to face her, their so-called enemy: it gets under their skin and yields results." - THE TIMES OF LONDON

"An entirely worthwhile film and - given that Khan has received death threats in the past - a brave one, too." -  THE GUARDIAN
