Burden (Film & Discussion)

Enter the world of Mike Burden (Garrett Hedlund), a taciturn repo man rising through the ranks of the Ku Klux Klan in small-town South Carolina. Loyal to the Klan for deeply personal reasons, Burden has a change of heart when he falls for a single mother who stirs his social conscience. His violent break from the Klan brings him to Reverend Kennedy (Forest Whitaker), an idealistic African American preacher. Based on a true story, Burden is an unflinching examination of our heritage of hatred, redemption, and the hard work of undoing racism.
