Welcome to Leith Documentary Trailer

Know your neighbors. The first official trailer has debuted for a documentary called Welcome to Leith, that played at many festivals after premiering at Sundance earlier this year. The doc profiles a small town in North Dakota called Leith, a tiny "ghost town" that gets taken over by a notorious white supremacist named Craig Cobb. There's some very harrowing and remarkable footage in this, showing some very scary things, but I'm also intrigued to see what angle some of the video is taken from. This looks like a very fascinating and disturbing thriller that examines one extreme example of American white supremacy. Worth watching.

Welcome to Leith Poster

Leith, North Dakota is a registered ghost town of only 24 people. Its inhabitants are mostly farmers or ranchers… Welcome to Leith is a feature documentary chronicling the attempted takeover of a small town in North Dakota by notorious white supremacist Craig Cobb. Filmed in the days leading up to Cobb's arrest for terrorizing the townspeople on an armed patrol and his subsequent release from jail six months later, the film is an eerie document of American DIY ideals. The documentary is directed by Michael Beach Nichols & Christopher K. Walker. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and also played the SXSW Film Festival, Hot Docs and AFI Docs. Welcome to Leith will arrive in select theaters starting September 9th.

      There's nothing funny about the terror they bring to the families that are affected by their hate. Nothing at all.

        My apologies. I was being uncouth. You are right.

        Meanwhile you have no problem with the hatred directed at them. Hypocrite.

          I checked out your history. You're a troll. And a bad one. Nice try though.

      You find racism funny? Wow. Tell that to the people being tormented by this racist scum. Tell that to the people whose property value has been destroyed by them. You need help if you think this is funny. Try educating yourself about the effects of racism.
      • DAVIDPD
        Yes, you are right in your thinking. I was trying to be a smart ass. I am sorry.
      • Steh Auf
        How about racism against Whites? Or is that acceptable?

      Maybe you could pull your dick out of your sister for a moment and go talk to some of these people you think you hate.
      • Steh Auf
        I'm sure you're going to love living in this country when it's turned into Mexico/Africa, right? Where will your "high sensibilities" be then, I wonder?
        • borninatrailer
          You probably should fuck off back to Stormfront.
    • Really? Whats to love about a bunch of ignorant, extremely uneducated gun loving violent wanna be nazi's? This has zero to do with Freedom of speech. Get that into your tiny skull already.
      • Steh Auf
        You sure are full of hate, aren't you?
  • Human beings finding ways to hate each other since the beginning of time. America does seem to produce some of the dumbest cunts on the planet though
  • Stuff like this is fascinating to me. Looks like a heck of a documentary! Can't wait.
  • Steh Auf
    Looks to be nothing more than an anti-white hit piece. Completely biased. The sheep should just gobble it up.
    • shiboleth
      Well, it's obviously full of hatred, wannabe nazi's and is promoting violence. Pretty much clear it does come from white people, not against them. And the ones talking against those are whites again. And that is not so hard to notice ...
  • shiboleth
    Sick people like these exist in many countries of the world. Unfortunately, people of this mentality make a lot of other, innocent people suffer and those bigot evildoers go often unpunished for that. Which is the reason, or one of them, why such kinds of documentaries are always welcome ...
  • Bradley Greenwood
    Keep the Nazis in Leith... there is nothing else to see in ND. Just make sure to put bars around it.
