Published: 2016-10-14

The film made its world premiere in Chicago at the 2009 IFP Chicago Underground Film Festival and won the audience choice award for best documentary.

Jewish American political scientist Norman Finkelstein is the probing American Radical, this is the definitive documentary on Dr. Finkelstein. A devoted son of holocaust survivors, an ardent critic of Israel and US Middle East policy, Finkelstein has been at the centre of many intractable controversies, including denial of tenure at to him DePaul University.

Called a lunatic and self-hating Jew by some and an inspirational street-fighting revolutionary by others, Finkelstein is a polarizing figure.  He is author of, among other publications, The Holocaust Industry.
