Picture the girl from the famous Vietnam Napalm Photo or the more recent Falling Man image from 9/11. Every so often, uncensored media pierces the status quo, shocking readers or viewers. Americans for Peace and Tolerance’s new documentary, “Hate Spaces: The Politics of Intolerance on Campus,” does just that. The film explores the roots of the BDS movement waged against Israel and reveals the mob mentality that characterizes anti-Semitic student groups on college campuses across the U.S. This 70-minute production provides an alarming wake-up call, but also a resource to combat an ideology that would otherwise commandeer the discourse on college campuses, writes Jeffrey Barken in his review of the film.
