War Against the Weak
Based on the book of the same title by best-selling author Edwin Black, "War Against the Weak" is the untold story of American Eugenics, a movement that attempted to breed a Nordic master race through the elimination of those deemed 'unfit'.

In the first three decades of the 20th century, American corporate 'philanthropy' cooperated with the scientific, academic and political elite to create the modern pseudoscience eugenics, and institutionalized race politics as national policy. The goal was to create a superior, Caucasian race and obliterate virtually every other genotype.

Germany's Nazi regimes practiced American Eugenics principles without restraint, culminating in the Third Reich's infamous implementation of systematic genocide. In the United States, eugenicists openly supported Germany's purification agenda with both financial and intellectual capital. With the onset of World War II, Nazi eugenics programs accelerated from mass sterilization and euthanasia to deliberate liquidation of perceived 'inferior' races.

We often say, 'never forget,' and yet Americans have completely forgotten this appalling chapter of our own history. War Against the Weak is a gripping narrative of high science applied in the basest, most horrific form and should serve as warning bell for the impending genetic age when technological marvels again threaten to be applied for the goals of a selected few without moral compass.

Director Justin Strawhand & Producer Peter Demas in attendance for Q & A.
