Penn State Altoona presented a viewing of the film "The Anatomy of Hate" on Tuesday, October 2, 2012 in the Pond View Lounge of the Slep Student Center. Michael Ramsdell, the maker of the film, was in attendance.
The film is described as follows: "The Anatomy of Hate; A Dialogue to Hope reveals the shared narratives found in individual and collective ideologies of hate, and how we as a species can overcome them. For six years the filmmaker worked with unprecedented access to some of the most venomous ideologies and violent conflicts of our time including the White Supremacist movement, Christian Fundamentalism as an anti-gay platform, Muslim Extremism, the Palestinian Intifada, Israeli Settlers and Soldiers, and US Forces in Iraq. By juxtaposing this footage 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."
