Undercover in the Alt-Right

Undercover in the Alt-Right

Our investigator has spent the past year undercover, filming covertly with key players in the organization, for the first time revealing them and the policies they
stand for.

This film is about Patrik and his journey into the heart of darkness. Patrik is a young Swedish guy who has spent a year trying to befriend the Alt-Right and to understand who and what they really are.

We learn how the Alt-Right are white supremacists for the digital age who specifically target disaffected young white men in the hope that they will become soldiers in the fight against Liberalism.

Using the internet, they operate in a similar way to ISIS – inspiring and
encouraging acts of hate through social media, attempting to “normalize” their extreme views. We discover the depth of their hatred – of Jews, Muslims, African
Americans, liberal women and just about anyone who believes in equality. They are disaffected, angry and dangerous.
