2 DOCUMENTARIES on members of the White Supremacist Movement in the USA
1. Louis Theroux - Louis And The Nazis (2003, 79min):
Louis Theroux, innocently looking explorer of social phenomena and fringe groups in the USA,
this time ventures into the world of "White Pride/Separatism" (Neo-Nazism).
He visits Tom Metzger, a former leading member of the Ku Kux Klan in California who feels
himself more in tune now with the Skinhead movement and has ideas about becoming someone
of international significance in the right-wing scene.
Louis Theroux's second investigation explores the life of April Gaede and her two twin daughters
Lynx and Lamb who form the "White Power" duo "Prussian Blue" (the lack of this chemical in the
gas chambers of Nazi slaughter camps was explained by Holocaust deniers to be proof of their
viewpoint that no industrial scale executions could have happened there).
In the end Louis Theroux confronts Tom Metzger and April Gaede with his own take on their
somewhat extraordinary view of the world.
2. Nazi Pop Twins - Prussian Blue (2007, 49min):
Unlike "Louis and the Nazis" this documentary focuses exclusively on the Gaede family with April
Gaede as the Arian activist mother and her daughters Lynx and Lamb at the center. This allows
James Quinn to dig a little deeper than Theroux and reveal serious tensions in the family when it
becomes more and more apparent that the pop duo does not share their mother's passion for
openly expressing extremly divisive views on ethnic issues.
