Louis Theroux: The Ultra Zionists

The Ultra Zionists follows acclaimed documentary filmmaker Louis Theroux as he visits one of the most politically contentious places on the planet: the West Bank of Israel.

Long a site of disagreement between Israel and Palestine, the West Bank is today home to ultra-nationalist Israelis who believe that it is their divine right and imperative to settle in the land that currently belongs to another nation.

Theroux interviews some of these “ultra Zionists”, listens to their perspective on the land that they feel rightfully belongs to them, and unpacks some of the tensions between Israel and Palestine that this small group of settlers runs the risk of reigniting.

The Ultra Zionists explores the clash of religions and cultures throughout Israel, from the Muslim quarter of Jerusalem to the slowly expanding Israeli borders that the rest of the world will not recognise.
