Tonight's winning programs illustrate once again the absolute urgency and necessity of free and unrestricted reporting. We congratulate the winning reporters and crews behind these outstanding reports for having the courage to shine their lens on horrific human tragedy and violent extremism at the risk of their own safety."

In this acclaimed documentary, 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.
