Viral: Antisemitism in Four Mutations | View Trailer

Documentary | US, UK, France, Hungary (2019) | 82 minutes | English

The film looks at the rise of Anti-Semitism throughout the world through the eyes of some of those most affected by it, and then provides an analysis as to why it’s occurring, with a focus on the US, France, the UK, and Hungary. With interviews with Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, academics, activists, journalists, as well as some of the survivors of the Pittsburgh synagogue and French grocery massacres, this film will hopefullyopen people’s eyes to how this kind of hatred begins.
