The three-part documentary series The US and the Holocaust, directed by Ken Burns, offers an enthralling reflection on a nation built on the myth of immigration.

Burns is no stranger to the long-form documentary; he is renowned for crafting deep-dive immersions into key historical events, often with his long-time collaborators Lynn Novick and Sarah Botstein.

Like the CIA and MI6, the Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency, has spawned countless myths since its inception in 1950.

The tales behind its top-secret operations have been the basis for books and films that, in turn, have fed the imagination of fans of conspiracy theories the world over.

From director Duki Dror, the four-part series Inside the Mossad turns the camera on former heads and agents as they break their silence for the very first time.

The series, now streaming exclusively on DocPlay, was one of Israeli network Hot8’s most successful shows ever when it launched on the channel.
