WORLD PREMIERE In Clarkston, a small town in Georgia, a successful Kurdish doctor and a Muslim-hating white supremacist form an unlikely friendship. Against the backdrop of an exceptionally racially- diverse community, themes of xenophobia, Islamophobia, and forgiveness play out in an intimate and accessible way. Directors Din Blankenship and Erin Bernhard put the focus on understanding, resulting in a moving film with a lot of heart that moves the conversation on racial divisions towards healing. – Karen McMullen

This screening will be followed by a Q&A with Directors Erin Bernhardt and Din Blankenship, crew member Kato Dsenabulya and film subjects Chris Buckley, Melissa Buckley and Arno Michaelis
