Atlanta, GA, August 16, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- The UnAmerican Struggle is a feature-length documentary from 1366 Films that examines the resurgence of racism, misogyny, sexism, and xenophobia in America brought about by Donald Trump's words and actions as a candidate, and now his policies as president.
The documentary provides a voice to groups affected by the intolerance and bigotry sweeping the nation like a cancer, as evident from the violence perpetrated by white supremacists in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. The film speaks to the dangers of remaining silent in the face of state-inspired hate and threats to civil rights.
The UnAmerican Struggle, winner of the Award of Merit Special Mention in the IndieFEST Film Awards, pays close attention to the struggle for equality from the perspective of Immigrants, Latinos, Muslims, Blacks, Women, and Transgender people. Seventeen experts representing the Southern Poverty Law Center, the National Diversity Council, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and local groups, such as Black Lives Matter, lent their voices to the film.
"Bigotry will continue to flourish during Donald Trump's presidency. He made it quite clear that he would not unequivocally condemn the terrorism perpetrated by the white supremacists in Charlottesville. People must get off the fence and get involved to protect our values,” Director Ric Osuna said.
The UnAmerican Struggle looks to educate people about the reality of bigotry in America and inspire them to help return the country to its principles rooted in tolerance and diversity.
