Homeland. The houses of right-wing populism

Right-wing populism is spreading through Western Europe like wildfire. 

It is most popular in quiet, white neighbourhoods where people are shielded from different cultures and lifestyles. 

In this unscripted documentary, Sam Peeters portrays an ironic caricature of life in the Flemish suburbs, which reflects the current European zeitgeist.
