Louis Theroux gets close to the extreme end of the West Bank’s Jewish settler movement.
The West Bank has been the white-hot center of global religious and political unrest for decades. Now, a subculture of Jewish ultra-nationalists are considering it their obligation to populate some of its most sensitive areas.
In this Louis Theroux documentary, the British filmmaker gets close to the people most involved with driving this extreme movement, finding them warm, humorous – and deeply troubling.
