The Dissident – Watch the trailer for new Jamal Khashoggi documentary

Altitude has released the new UK trailer for The Dissident, the new documentary that examines the murder of Jamal Khashoggi. Directed by Academy Award-winner, Bryan Fogel (ICARUS), the film is set for release in the UK and Ireland in March 2021.

THE DISSIDENT is a documentary thriller that plays out at the highest levels of power as it exposes the labyrinth of deceit behind Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder in the Saudi Embassy in Istanbul. Offering a wealth of never-before-seen footage and unprecedented access to those closest to the story THE DISSIDENT is a story of money, tyranny and technology run amok.

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. His fiancée and dissidents around the world are left to piece together clues to his brutal murder—and in their dogged quest for truth, they expose a global cover-up perpetrated by the very country he loved.

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, Academy Award–winning filmmaker Bryan Fogel unearths hidden secrets in this real-life international thriller that will continue to rock the world long after the headlines have faded away.

Chillingly powerful and heartbreakingly candid, The Dissident is an intimate portrait of a man who sacrificed everything for freedom of speech. With this cogent film, Fogel joins a cadre of dreamers across the globe who refuse to squelch the life’s work of an intrepid rebel, who, even after death, is defying those who sought to silence him forever.

The documentary premiers at the Glasgow Film Festival on 6th March 2021.
