" I'm a woman of colour, I am the daughter of immigrants. I am a Muslim. I am a feminist. I am a lefty liberal. And what I want to ask you is: am I your enemy?"

One year ago this weekend, Emmy and Peabody Award-winning Muslim filmmaker Deeyah Khan found herself in the middle of the now-infamous Unite the Right Rally in Charlottesville. Speaking with fascists, racists and proponents of alt-right ideologies including Richard Spencer, Khan was attempting to understand the personal and political motivations behind the resurgence of far-right extremism in the U.S .

This week, WHITE RIGHT: MEETING THE ENEMY was nominated for an International Emmy and NBC News reported that Khan's meeting with Ken Parker, an ex-grand dragon of the KKK, was the beginning of a transformation that led to his denouncing of hate groups.
WHITE RIGHT: MEETING THE ENEMY  is an urgent and personal look at race wars in America and a critical resource for understanding and discussing the issues dividing us.  As the country braces for an anniversary rally organized by white nationalists this weekend, it's essential that educators, community leaders and all American citizens look head-on at the roots of the racism that has crept back into politics.  

" 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
