The Dissident

by Bryan Fogel Hashtag #GetUpStandUp

From Bryan Fogel, The Academy-Award winning Director of ICARUS.
Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi was critical of his beloved Saudi Arabia and of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s policies. On October 2, 2018, Khashoggi entered the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul and never came out. With exclusive access to the Turkish government’s evidence; to Khashoggi’s fiancée, Hatice Cengiz; and to Khashoggi’s close friend and fellow Saudi insurgent, Omar Abdulaziz, Fogel unearths hidden secrets in this real-life international thriller that will continue to rock the world long after the headlines have faded away. THE DISSIDENT is an intimate portrait of a man who sacrificed everything for freedom of speech.
