AMERICAN RADICAL: THE TRIALS OF NORMAN FINKLESTEIN



Full title: American Radical: The Trials of Norman Finkelstein. American Radical is a probing portrait of US scholar Norman Finkelstein. The son of holocaust survivors, an ardent critic of Israel and US Middle East policy, and the author of five renowned books including, "The Holocaust Industry", Finkelstein has been at the centre of successive controversies, notably that surrounding his denial of tenure at DePaul University. Labelled a “lunatic” or “selfhating Jew” by some, an “inspirational revolutionary” by others, Finkelstein remains a hugely polarizing figure in the United States. In their definitive “wartsandall” documentary, David Ridgen and Nicolas Rossier follow Finkelstein around the world, navigating between the voices of supporters and critics to generate an intimate account of the man behind the controversies.
