Two filmmakers are hard at work putting the finishing touches on a documentary about Leith, N.D., the town where neo-Nazi Craig Cobb had begun buying properties to establish a white supremacist enclave far away from the multicultural cities.

Here’s a preview of the film.

Christopher Walker, a producer, director and editor for the documentary, and his filmmaking partner, Michael Nichols, said they started following the story last year after this blog uncovered the first details of Cobb’s plans.

Cobb’s pipe dream appears to have been permanently snuffed out when he was arrested in November for terrorizing residents during an armed stroll around the tiny town. He now sits in jail under $1 million bail.

The Brooklyn-based filmmakers described their documentary as “a short film offering a glimpse into a town struggling for sovereignty against one man’s extremist vision.”
