No Rating

Oscar-winning filmmaker Bryan Fogel (Icarus,DOC NYC 2017) investigates the 2018 murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The film breaks new ground with access to key sources including Khashoggi’s fiancée Hatice Cengiz, Turkish police and prosecutors, and the young Saudi dissident with whom Khashoggi was working. Revealing that this is bigger than one murder, this exposé opens our eyes to the shocking reaches of electronic surveillance. “When it comes to edge-of-your-seat intrigue, this is a movie with just about everything” (Variety).
