"Youth today want to be part of something and unfortunately there is a kind of hip aspect to being a neo-Nazi..."

In May 1993, Ottawa looked on in horror as an anti-racist demonstration turned into a violent street brawl. In response to the growing phenomena of race-related violence, Youth Services Bureau is pleased to make available to the public Bonehead, an innovative 24-minute video made in collaboration with youth who have first hand experience as former neo-Nazis, and those victimized by organized racism.
Bonehead takes a candid look at how kids are being used as pawns in what is essentially an adult game of hatred. The video uses an innovative blend of documentary and drama to educate the viewer. The talk is direct, often raw; the editing is fast-paced, and there is no shortage of humour. The tape features original music from the Illegal Jazz Poets.

A study guide is included.
