Synopsis: When Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi disappears in Istanbul, his fiancée and dissidents around the world piece together the clues to a murder and expose a global cover up.
As comprehensive and sobering an account of the murder of Saudi dissident Jamal Khashoggi as one could want is offered up by The Dissident. An Oscar winner for Icarus, his 2017 look into the Russian sports doping scandal, director Bryan Fogel has assembled this massively documented investigation in an impressively short amount of time; Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018, but one feels no stone was left unturned in researching and conveying the story. As the crime famously implicates the Saudi ruling family at the highest levels, there will be a keen interest in this grimly riveting work across the globe. 59ce067264
