Louis Theroux Without Limits
After a sell-out tour in 2016 and back by popular demand, the king of documentaries, BBC film-maker, immersive journalist and social commentator Louis Theroux will visit Australia and New Zealand in January 2020 with a brand-new show – Louis Theroux Without Limits.
Join the fearless multi award-winning BBC film-maker for an evening of insight and exploration as he delves into subjects from his extraordinary catalogue of work. From the scary truth of the opioid epidemic and the dark reality behind sex-trafficking, to religious extremes and a whole new rulebook on modern-day relationships, Louis tackles it all with first-hand insight and his trademark sense of humour.
Louis will be joined by television and radio personality Julia Zemiro. Julia steps into Louis’s weird and wonderful mind and together they journey across the world and into its plethora of subcultures, communities and citizens. In this two-hour live show, discover behind-the-scenes secrets as they relive some of Louis’s most famous encounters, and discuss what happened after the cameras stopped rolling.
Louis Theroux has been making BAFTA award winning films and documentaries for over twenty years. His skill has always been getting people to say more than they thought they would—or could. Through this approach, he has shone light on some of the world’s most intriguing beliefs, behaviours, and institutions by getting to know the people at the heart of them – from the officers and inmates at San Quentin prison to the extreme believers of the Westboro Baptist Church; the male porn performers of the San Fernando Valley to exploring the secrets of the Church of Scientology.
Louis’ new documentaries will have their Australian premiere on BBC Knowledge from June 27.
