Europe: The Rise of the Extreme Right
The extreme right has won the European elections in France, Italy and Belgium and has gained about a quarter of MEPs in the new parliament. The xenophobia, patriarchy or authoritarianism that they preach are also present in the programs of parties that are not even considered ultra-right. Issues that were thought to be overcome, such as gender violence, the use of firearms or the death penalty, are being reintroduced into the debate. The documentary “Europe: The Rise of the Extreme Right” has investigated the xenophobic parties of Sweden, Italy and Spain and explains the reasons for their growth. They cut freedoms, assume power and attack the rule of law.
