BEST DOCUMENTARY FEATURE NOMINEE
2014 SLAMDANCE FILM FESTIVAL


January 2010: In the buckle of the Bible Belt, 10 churches burn to the ground in just over a month igniting the largest criminal investigation in East Texas history. No stone is left unturned and even Satan himself is considered a suspect in this gripping investigation of a community terrorized from the inside-out. Families are torn apart and communities of faith struggle with forgiveness and justice in this incredible true story.

BEST DOCUMENTARY SHORT SUBJECT NOMINEE
2013 ACADEMY AWARDS


As a 13 year-old, Matthew Boger was thrown out of his home for being gay. While living on the streets of Hollywood, he was savagely beaten in a back alley by a group of neo-Nazi skinheads. Boger managed to survive the attack and escape life on the streets. Twenty-five years later, Boger found himself in a chance meeting with a former neo-Nazi skinhead, Tim Zaal. The two men soon realized that they had met before...Zaal was one of the attackers who beat Boger and left him for dead.

With their worlds turned upside down, the two embarked on a journey of forgiveness and reconciliation that challenged both to grapple with their own beliefs and fears. Neither could imagine that it would to lead to an improbable collaboration...and friendship.


Academy Award® nominated producer/director Jason Cohen has produced and directed all formats of film and television on projects that cover a broad range of topics over the past 20 years. Cohen’s Facing Fear, a story of forgiveness between a former Neo-Nazi and the victim of his hate crime attack 25 years earlier, was nominated for an Oscar® for best documentary short subject in 2014. Currently, Cohen is in post-production on Four Women, One World, a global film about love and forgiveness that took him around the world to highlight stories in Uganda, India, Haiti, Spain and Italy.
