Beyond Paranoia is a powerful examination of the case against Israel and the recent upsurge in anti-Zionist sentiment. The documentary argues that behind the intellectual "smoke screen" of anti-Zionism lurks the familiar hatred of the Jew as “the other", the Christ-killer, the powerful and secretive international conspirator pulling the strings.
With stylised visual and poetic moments, contemporary images and spine-chilling, previously unseen archival material from European, Arab and Palestinian Authority Television as well as images that seek to vilify Jews in a manner reminiscent of the worst of Nazi propaganda, this archival material will truly shock and outrage.
Interviews span commentators including journalists, political activists, academics and activists. A must-see, authoritative documentary in the fight against anti-Semitism in all of its multifarious forms.
