”White Noise” is the result of a four-year commitment to investigating and exposing the roots of rising white nationalism in the U.S. and abroad. “The Atlantic” magazine has covered race in America for the better part of two centuries. “White Noise” brings the monthly’s long tradition of reporting on justice and equality, and the rigor of long-form magazine reporting, to the big screen through immersive, cinematic storytelling. The result is a deeply reported journey through the underbelly of the alt-right, bringing viewers an unfiltered, clear-eyed look at a powerful extremist movement. The past four years have shown that even as the alt-right fractures and reinvents itself, the ideas it has unleashed have succeeded in infiltrating mainstream political discourse and shaping the direction of America. White Noise is essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand this urgent reality.
