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.
Bryan Fogel is an American film director, producer, author, playwright, speaker and human rights activist best known for the 2017 documentary Icarus, which won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature in 2018. Icarus premiered at the Sundance Film Festival before being acquired by Netflix in a historic sale. The evidence brought forward in Icarus by Russian whistleblower Dr. Grigory Rodchenkov was instrumental in the Olympic Committee’s banning of Russia from the 2018 Winter Olympic Games.
