About The Antidote:

2020. 102 m. Kahane Cooperman/John Hoffman. Abramorama. US. English. NR.

Made in response to the times we are living in, The Antidote is a feature documentary that weaves together stories of kindness, decency, and the power of community in America. It’s about everyday people who make the intentional choice to lift others up and make their communities better, despite the fundamentally unkind ways of our society—which are at once facts of life in America, and yet deeply antithetical to our founding ideals. Directed by Academy Award-nominee Kahane Cooperman and six-time Emmy-winner John Hoffman, The Antidote aims to drive a national conversation about the roles that kindness, decency, compassion, and respect play in a civilized, democratic society. While it’s easy to court despair in the face of monumental, structural problems, The Antidote tells stories of compassionate people intentionally leveraging the resources within themselves and their communities to give others a chance at a better life. The Antidote isn’t about an idea or a platform; there are no historians, policy wonks, or celebrities. It is simply about how we treat each other. It is about who we are and, maybe, it’s about who we can be.
