Matthew Boger was thrown out of his home at the age of 13 for being gay. One dark night he was savagely beaten nearly to death by a group of neo-Nazi skinheads. Twenty-five years later found himself in a chance meeting with one of his attackers. 

Facing Fear examines events that shaped the two men from childhood and retraces the horrific attack, and the startling revelation, that propelled them on a journey of forgiveness and reconciliation.

The post-film discussion will touch on hate, forgiveness, and activism in the current political environment that has prompted bigotry to emerge from the shadows.
