UPDATE: The film is funded!! Thank you!

This is amazing: the film is funded. Thank you to everyone who has pledged. We've already let the team know the project can proceed

The more money we raise, the more people will see the film, so please keep pledging your support.

If we hit $60,000, we'll be able to put on screening events at 10 campuses in the US, including in Charlottesville, as well five screenings in the UK.

Thank you again for your support: it means we can get Patrik's incredible story out there.

---------------------------

We are HOPE not hate, leading anti-fascist organization.

We knew the alt-right was a rapidly-growing far-right threat to society. So we did what we do best – got inside. 

For the past year, we sent Patrik Hermansson undercover in the alt-right. He infiltrated the heart of the movement, and he caught it all on hidden camera. He heard them boast of ties to the White House, and he was among neo-Nazis and white supremacists in Charlottesville.

Based off our undercover research and infiltration into the movement, we have unique and unprecedented footage and access inside the international alt-right movement.

This story is too important not to be told – but regular production companies and distributors aren't comfortable taking it on. We know the only way to bring this project to life is to turn to passionate individuals who care about the future of this country's democracy. 

We have one goal: finish the movie so that we can expose the alt-right for what it is: international, well-funded, and able to influence in the highest corridors of power.

Once finished, the movie will form the center piece of our “Right the wrongs” Tour of America. We will take our film to town halls and campuses as part of an educational initiative to shed light on the alt-right and develop support for how to combat it and close it down.

Press

"Mr. Hermansson, who was sent undercover by the British anti-racist watchdog group Hope Not Hate, spent months insinuating himself into the alt-right, using his Swedish nationality (many neo-Nazis are obsessed with Sweden because of its “Nordic” heritage) as a way in. It wasn’t always easy. “You want to punch them in the face,” he told me of the people he met undercover. “You want to scream and do whatever — leave. But you can’t do any of those things. You have to sit and smile.”" – The New York Times

"Speaking of his experiences infiltrating the network of white supremacists, Patrik Hermansson said: “For almost a year I’ve been at the heart of a world of extreme racism, antisemitism, Holocaust denial, esoteric Nazi rituals and wild conspiracy theories.“What I found was a movement that sometimes glorifies Nazi Germany, openly supports genocidal ideas and is unrelentingly racist, sexist and homophobic.”" – The Independent

"In the Hope not Hate report, Hermansson writes about meeting Jorjani: "I ask about AltRight Corporation and its aims and objectives and he explains how it is a “government in waiting.” But then, out of nowhere, as though it was no big deal, he says: “We had connections in the Trump administration, we were going to do things!”" – Newsweek

Risks and challenges

We've teamed up with Silverfish Media, an award-winning filmmaking team, to make the 60-minute film.
