4 of the best Louis Theroux doccies to stream right now
As the world population grapples with the effects of social distancing and nation-wide lockdowns, human behaviour has never been more fascinating. Especially if you’re Louis Theroux, arguably the most famous filmmaker and investigate journalist.
While you look forward to his brilliant, thoughtful take on the effect that fighting a global pandemic has had on society (we’d be surprised if he wasn’t working on something like this right now), here’s where you can watch some of his latest work.
Thirteen years since first encountering one of America’s most notorious hate groups, Louis revisits the hugely controversial Westboro Baptist Church, investigating what effect the death of its founder has had on its members. Watch it on DStv Now.
Louis embeds himself at three psychiatric mother and baby units in the UK where women with mental health issues are kept with their babies rather than being separated. But when does the mother’s behaviour become detrimental to her own and her child’s wellbeing? Watch it on DStv Now.
At a time of increased scrutiny about what constitutes sexual assault, award-winning documentary-maker Louis Theroux heads to American college campuses and comes face to face with students whose universities are accusing them of sexual assault. Watch it on DStv Now.
Women who are legally providing sexual services in exchange for money share how they use technology to share photos, make bookings and vet potential clients – making the exchange more accessible and, some argue, safer than the illegal alternatives. Watch it on DStv Now.
