Bryan Fogel

Overview

In 2018 Saudi dissident, journalist, and Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was ambushed and killed, his body dismembered at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The murder and its aftermath shocked the world and struck at the heart of press freedom, human rights, and international relations, but details have remained shrouded in mystery.

Now, acclaimed director Bryan Fogel applies his investigative eye to the events prior to and after Khashoggi's asassination. Fogel is an American film director, producer, author, and human rights activist whose award-winning documentary Icarus exposed the scandal of state-sponsored Russian doping in athletics.

In The Dissident, Fogel details the labyrinthine network of power behind the killing of Khashoggi, the corruption within the Saudi government, and the international response to the act. Through official footage and a range of interviews, this documentary details the Saudi government's control over dissent and the global power the nation wields.

"You have to understand what it's like to be a journalist in Saudi Arabia – every time you say something tough-minded you get fired. He was the sort of person who couldn't take a pass; he felt something, he insisted on writing it."

David Ignatius, associate editor of The Washington Post
