Overview

Blending archival and interview footage, Blood in the Face is a close-up examination of the emergence of far-right-wing groups in the United States in the early '90s. The film takes its title from the central myth of these groups, that because only whites can blush, only they feel shame, and therefore only they are human. In a series of amazing interviews, members of the Ku Klux Klan, the American Nazi Party, and the Posse Commitatus reveal the frighteningly over-rationalized logic behind their beliefs. "The Russians and Chinese are amassing tanks at the Mexican border" and "The men behind the Holocaust were Jews" are two of the more preposterous claims recorded by the film.

The result is an essential and powerful documentary.
