OLLI Movies that Matter uses the power of documentary films to educate, inform and create dialogue. The series of documentaries selected this coming year focus on important current and challenging social issues of our time. A moderator will introduce each film and facilitate discussion with local experts.

In this Emmy-winning documentary, acclaimed Muslim filmmaker Deeyah Khan travels to the U.S. from the U.K. to meet U.S. neo-Nazis and white nationalists face to face. Using skills that are part investigate journalist and part psychotherapist, she seeks to learn what drives such hatred and forces people to face her, their so called enemy. With the far-right gaining ground in German elections, hate crime rising in the U.K. and divisive populist rhetoric infecting political and public discourse across western democracies, “White Right” asks why.

Free. Open to the public. Membership is not required.
