      The Conspiracy

      2022 1 hr. 30 min. Animation Documentary List
      Reviews An animated documentary about the biggest lie ever told: Jews are plotting to take over the world. In times of extreme anxiety and disorientation, people are often drawn to conspiracy theories. Disinformation and delusion capture the minds of many. Today, fueled by social media algorithms, conspiracy theories once confined to the fringe are going mainstream. But beneath the surface, the pronouncements of QAnon are a retread of an age-old myth. Behind the torch-bearing chants of "Jews will not replace us" we find the original conspiracy theory: the lie that Jews are somehow dangerous. The Conspiracy is a feature documentary about the millions around the world who came to believe this lie, the fanatics who cultivated it across the centuries, and three Jewish families cast as villains. The Conspiracy eschews traditional documentary interview techniques for a bold, layered visual style that combines archive and animation in new ways. Read More Read Less
