The world premiere of A SONG CALLED HATE - Interview with the director Anna Hildur

A Song Called Hate by Anna Hildur will have its world premiere tonight, October 12, in the Free Spirit Competition at Warsaw Film Festival. Read the full interview with Anna Hildur, director of the film, where she talks about A Song Called Hate: "This is not a documentary about music, it's about the art of making a stand." 

A Song Called Hate follows Hatari, an anticapitalist, BDSM techno band, who were chosen to represent Iceland at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel. They turn heads and open minds with their in-your-face performance. But with 200 million people watching worldwide, Hatari found themselves unable to ignore the pressing politics of the Israel-Palestine conflict – so they resolved to make a difference. But will their message be able to pierce the shiny bubble of Eurovision?

The Warsaw Film Festival takes place from October 9 - 18. The Free Spirit Competition is for independent, innovative, rebellious feature length (over 60 min) fiction and documentary films from all over the world.
