One documentary filmmaker has made it her mission to confront racism head-on by documenting her experiences talking to neo-Nazis and members of the Klu Klux Klan.

Mo Asumang took on this undertaking by filming her brave journey to confront and challenge these racists — both in Germany and America — who often live in secluded societies with little interaction with minority members of their communities.

Asumang, who is biracial — her father is Ghanian and her mother is German — approached these groups with questions about their lifestyles and beliefs, which often forced them to acknowledge her presence and respond.

However, Asumang also received mixed reactions from some who refused to talk and instead, turned their back to her.

“These people don’t actually talk to Jews,” says Asumang in her documentary. “They don’t talk to black peopleBiracial filmmaker confronts racism face to face by talking to neo Nazis and KKK news arrow 10x10. They don’t know their enemy, so-called enemy. So what they do, when they talk to me, they talk to reality, and that’s the first thing they have to survive.”

At one point in the documentary, Asumang confronted a member of the KKK who was dressed in traditional all-white clothing and claimed: “I am not a racist.”

A preview of the documentary sheds more light on Asumang’s mission and some of the results of her brave journey.
