Erasing Hateis a remarkable story of transformation and redemption. In early 2009, Bryon Widner’s face, neck and hands were covered with intimidating, racist tattoos. It was then he began a series of painful and exten-sive laser tattoo removal procedures – twenty-five treatments over the course of more than a year and a half. But the tattoo removal was just the outward sign of an inner transformation. Erasing Hate chronicles both in a film that takes viewers inside the dark world of racist skinheads, yet offers hope in the story of one man’s struggle to escape from a life of addiction, bigotry and hatred.
