Welcome to Leith is a disturbing documentary about a North Dakota town terrorized by Neo Nazis from 2011 to 2014.
A group led by a white separatist named Craig Cobb aimed to create a Neo Nazi enclave and took violent measures to subdue the town's non-Nazi inhabitants.
The trailer for the documentary, below, is haunting. Two Leith inhabitants come across as especially courageous: the black American man and his white wife who stayed in the town, in the face of intense persecution.
Cobb's dream finally came to an end in March of this year when he was jailed for terrorizing the town's citizens.
The trailer for Welcome to Leith has already gone viral on Reddit, where more than one commenter described the trailer in glowing terms: "This looks fascinating. I'm haunted by the imagery, drawn in by the social science, frozen by the trainwreck. I can't wait to watch this doc."
The documentary's makers, Michael Beach Nichols and Christopher Walker, are currently seeking funds to complete the documentary. If you enjoyed the trailer, you can donate at their Kickstarter page here.
