Dissident, The

Directed and produced by Academy Award winner Bryan Fogel, THE DISSIDENT is the gripping story of a brazen murder and the subsequent global cover-up. Jamal Khashoggi was a Washington Post journalist who went into the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul in 2018 to pick up some paperwork….and never came out. He vanished completely, leaving his fiancée and friends to try and piece together clues in his wake. A gripping tale of murder and cover-up on a global scale, Academy Award winner Bryan Fogel (Icarus) returns with a spellbinding doco about a labyrinth of deception at the highest levels. His film is a shocking and sobering - yet totally essential - watch.
