Welcome to Leith is non-fiction cinema moulded into a high stakes thriller. Chronicling the attempted takeover of Leith, North Dakota by white supremacist Craig Cobb, it begins as an ‘enemy within’ story, as townsfolk realise that the man buying their land is trying to create a hub for America’s neo-Nazi movement. As Cobb’s disciples arrive the locals rise up, and this documentary takes an even more sinister turn.
