"Welcome to Leith" chronicles the attempted takeover of a small town in North Dakota by notorioius white supremacist Craig Cobb. 

"Welcome to Leith" premiers tonight on Independent Lens,  SDPB-TV at 9 p.m. Central, 8 p.m. Mountain. Filmmaker Michael Beach Nichols sits down with Dakota Midday host Lori Walsh to talk about the town of Leith as character and inspiration, about the challenges and opportunities of cinematography in rural North Dakota, and about how the people of Leith opened their lives to the filmmakers, in order to have their story documented during time of need.
