The Oscar-winning movie director and Oscar-winning documentarian are teaming up on a six-part docuseries that will investigate the human capacity for hatred, drawing on research from psychology, neuroscience, sociology and history. “Getting to the root of the human condition is something I find not only fascinating, but absolutely necessary in understanding who we are,” Spielberg tells Variety. “With the team in place, we delve into historical and modern-day stories of hate, traveling around the globe to uncover its mystery in others and in ourselves. If we understand why we act the way we do, we can change the way we act. That is what we are uniquely capable of as human beings.” Gibney adds: “This is not a series that simply documents something that’s happening, it’s an inquiry — an attempt to understand why we hate, through the science, and through a sense of common humanity."
