WelcomeToLeith_01

(Michael Beach Nichols, Christopher K. Walker | USA | 86 min.)
A haunting tale of a tiny North Dakotan town whose peaceful population of 24 is thrown into turmoil when a curious stranger buys up empty land to establish an all-Aryan epicenter in their backyard. Craig Cobb challenges local residents who unite in order to fight their new neighbors. But controversial claims of civil rights and freedom of speech are pushed to their limits, creating a tangled web of legal issues. Both form and content evoke classic horror in this evocative documentary that pierces to the heart of civil liberties and poses a disturbing look at American home-bred terrorism.
