Beyond Hatred (Au dela de la haine)

Examines the events behind the violent death in Rheims, France of Francois Chenu, a young gay man who was murdered by 3 homophobic skinheads in 2002. The film follows the lengthy trial of the accused killers, and offers a moving firsthand account of the complex emotional response of the victim's family. In so doing, it explores the social and psychological roots of homophobia and similar hate crimes as well as demonstrating the emotional maturity that enables the rare human quality of forgiveness. Director, Olivier Meyrou. 2006. 86 min.
