American Radical (2009) is the probing, definitive documentary about Jewish-American political scientist Norman Finkelstein. A devoted son of holocaust survivors and ardent critic of Israel and US Middle East policy, Finkelstein has been steadfast at the center of many intractable controversies.

Called a lunatic and self-hating Jew by some and an inspirational street-fighting revolutionary by others, Finkelstein's struggles arise from core questions about freedom, identity and nationhood.
