The murder of Saudi Arabia-born Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi shocked the world. The latest documentary from Oscar-winning director Bryan Fogel (Icarus) explores the case in forensic detail. Fogel’s enthralling examination offers a greater understanding of Khashoggi’s life and work, covers the rise of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and reveals how political activist Omar Abdulaziz risks his life to challenge the Saudi Arabian government. All roads lead to the Embassy of Saudi Arabia in Turkey, and Khashoggi’s gruesome death, in a film with all the pace and intensity of a political thriller.
