“PUZZLES When Hate Came to Town” tells the story of a hate crime in a LGBTQ bar called Puzzles Lounge in New Bedford, MA when a teenager entered and brutally attacked its patrons. PUZZLES explores the correlationbetween economic hardship and homophobia, intolerance, and, ultimately, violence.
In the wake of the devastating attack at the LGBTQ nightclub PULSE in Orlando, Florida, killing 49 patrons, this documentary is particularly important as it asks hard questions and frames the connection between hate crimes and extremist ideologies and the increase in hate violence against LGBTQ communities.
