As described today by the Globe & Mail?s Henrietta Walmark:

?Celebrities and academics alike embarrassed themselves last year with their anti-Semitism. As if the accusations of prejudice surrounding The Passion of the Christ weren’t enough, Mel Gibson upped the ante with his drunken gibe at Jews. Closer to home, a Nova Scotia poli-sci prof attended a conference for Holocaust deniers organized by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian President who has called for an end to the existence of Israel. This documentary, written and directed by Andrew Goldberg, tries to explain the recent disturbing and quite public rise of what many call "the oldest hatred of the human race." Although anti-Semitism has been virtually universally condemned since the Holocaust, this doc tells us that during the first six years of this decade, major acts of violence against Jews and Jewish institutions have nearly doubled the number of incidents that happened during all of the nineties. Goldberg’s 60- minute film explores the roots of anti-Semitism to explain why the ages-old hatred is flourishing again.?
