Watch The Red Tent
- 1 Season
"The Red Tent" is based on the book by Anita Diamant, which is a revisionist telling of the Biblical story of Dinah. In the traditional interpretation, Dinah is raped by a prince named Shechem, and her brothers destroy Shechem's town in vengeance. In "The Red Tent," the rape is reimagined as a forbidden romance. More focus is given to female characters, but the book is controversial for making them pagans and arguably demonizing the male characters (except Shechem). The miniseries gained further controversy due to using almost exclusively white actors.
