Blood in the Face

A 1991 documentary by Anne Bohlen, Kevin Rafferty, and James Ridgeway about the white supremacy movement in the U.S., centered on a gathering of various groups—including the American Nazi Party, Aryan Nation, and the Ku Klux Klan—in rural Michigan in 1986. Regrettably missing is much background information about what led to this particular gathering (some of which can be found in Ridgeway's book of the same title); the filmmakers' sense of a historical context is also restricted mainly to a few archival clips. Yet despite some occasional cutesy editing and a tendency to crosscut that often reduces the discourse of the speakers to sound bites, this is a fascinating and disturbing glimpse into an important subject. 78 min.
