Bay Area filmmaker Jason Cohen's documentary short "Facing Fear" follows the unlikely reconciliation between a former neo-Nazi skinhead and the gay man he brutally assaulted. Twenty-five years after white supremacist Tim Zaal beat homeless teenager Matthew Boger nearly to death, the two men met by chance and began a journey toward forgiveness and understanding. We talk with Cohen and Zaal about the film, which has been nominated for an Academy Award.

Guests:

Jason Cohen, producer and director of "Facing Fear"

Tim Zaal, consultant for the Simon Wiesenthal Center Task Force Against Hate
