Mike Ramsdell, the director of "The Anatomy of Hate: A Dialogue to Hope," will show his documentary and lead a follow up discussion beginning at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 1 in North Idaho College's Edminster Student Union Building Lake Coeur d'Alene Room.
The film is a study of hate, its effect on society and how it can be overcome.
"By juxtaposing footage of hate in action with interviews from leading sociological, psychological and neurological experts, and interspersing stories of redemption told by former 'combatants,' the film weaves a tapestry that reveals both the emotional and biological mechanisms which make all of us susceptible to acts and ideologies of hate, and demonstrates how these very same traits make us equally capable of overcoming them," Ramsdell writes in his director's statement.
The presentation is sponsored by the Associated Students of NIC and the Dean of Students Office. It is free and open to the public.
