Roots of Hatred [Part1], presented by volunteer presenters Valerie Emmott, Danyal Laskar and Madge Dresser.
>This year’s Cannes Film Festival premiered with Up, an innovative 3d animated film using new technologies which will lie at the foundation of future cinema. However, the film which won the prestigious Golden Palm award was a completely different experience. Made in black and white, The White Ribbon (German: Das weiße Band) takes audiences right back in time to pre First World War Germany. Director Michael Haneke says the film is about “the origin of every type of terrorism, be it of political or religious nature.” It explores the origins of the fascism that would lead to the rise of the Nazis many years later and the slow ferment of racial and cultural hatreds that led to the Third Reich’s Holocaust.
With this in mind, presenters Danyal, Valerie and Madge are introducing a new series of regular podcasts looking at The Roots Of Hatred. What lessons should we look for from the past when trying to understand and counter today’s alarming rise in anti-Semitic and Islamophobic sentiments? How does a more mutual, shared future grow from where we’ve come from in our societies?
