About

Executive produced by Oscar®-winners Alex Gibney and Steven Spielberg, and directed by Emmy®-winners Geeta Gandbhir and Sam Pollard, this six-part docu-series investigates the human capacity for hatred and how we can overcome it. While all humans have the capacity to hate, few understand what sparks it and transforms it into a destructive force. Drawing on ground-breaking research in psychology, biology, and neuroscience, each episode traces the evolutionary basis of hatred and its powerful impact on individuals and societies throughout human history. Helping to unpack these complex issues in each episode are experts including cognitive scientist Laurie Santos, evolutionary anthropologist Brian Hare, journalist and author Jelani Cobb, extremism expert Sasha Havlicek, international criminal lawyer Patricia Viseur Sellers, and neuroscientist Emile Bruneau.
