With Jon Ronson's Escape and Control series coming to an end, it was time to make one more attempt at finding Omer Gershon, the actor who appeared in a YouTube video claiming to have experienced homophobia from the Free Gaza Movement. How did he get involved? Why did he make the video? These questions and more are addressed when Jon Ronson finds Omer Gershon in Tel Aviv.

Escape & Control is an online documentary series in which internationally acclaimed journalist and filmmaker Jon Ronson (Adventures with Extremists, The Men Who Stare At Goats and The Psychopath Test) turns his attentions to the Internet.

It can sometimes feel like we're creating a new kind of democracy online, where we control and regulate each other instead of being told how to behave by those in authority. But there are people out there who don't like this idea at all. So they want to come up with ways to control it.

Sometimes maybe even secret ways...

With searing interviews, unravelling mysteries and some great fun along the way, Jon Ronson is setting off on an adventure that may mean you'll never look at your mouse in the same way again.

Written and Directed by Jon Ronson
