HOLLYWOOD, Calif., Oct. 01, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sycamore Entertainment Group, Inc. (SEGI), is pleased to announce that it has acquired world-wide rights to the film “IN DARKNESS & IN LIGHT: A Journey of Atonement in Auschwitz” from Author Tony McAleer.
Tony McAleer, a former holocaust denier and a founding member of the anti-hate activist group Life After Hate takes us on a deeply personal journey with his film as he fulfills a promise he made on the the road to healing from hate.
He travels to Auschwitz to shed a unique perspective on the pain and suffering caused by the death camps of world War II Poland. The film also explores how men get into, and out of, violent extremist groups while calling attention to the potential underlying dangers of allowing hate to be left unchecked.
As the ultimate demonstration of hope and progress Sycamore and Tony come together to share an important message of self-reflection, atonement, healing and retribution.
Edward Sylvan, CEO of Sycamore Entertainment states, “At no other time in history has it been more important to discuss how hate and racism are destroying the very fabric of humanity.” He goes on to say, “As a Black CEO, working together with a former White Supremacist underscores the possibilities for change that highlight steps for true understanding and acceptance.”
Sycamore plans to debut the film in February 2021 at The Monaco International Film Festival followed by a North American release in March of 2021.
