Revisiting the Harms of Hate (Film)
A decade on from the original film, ‘Revisiting the Harms of Hate’ features the voices of people typically considered as members of ‘hard-to-reach’ groups, or perhaps more pertinently ‘easy to ignore’. Four victims share their experiences of hate and harassment, and explore how they have been affected by the events of an extraordinary decade.
Hate crimes have escalated over the past ten years, with hostile attitudes, divisive politics, online toxicity and continued cuts to services all reinforcing the huge challenges facing those who are targeted simply because of who they are or what they look like. But as well as showcasing these challenges, the film identifies steps that all of us can take to stop the hate. We can all make a difference.
