“Hatred” is about the pain of isolation and the horror of the subconscious, seen through the eyes of two brothers living on a forlorn ranch, struggling to retain what sanity they have left. After a violent altercation in town, one of the brothers plummets into despair, losing touch with reality. “Hatred” illustrates the relationship of these isolated brothers, with an experimental filmmaking approach that aims to demonstrate the ferocity of nightmares and the dread of not knowing what is real.
