Fogel proves that he is a major documentary storyteller with his completely shocking and gripping follow-up “The Dissident,” which assembles all of the many pieces behind Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s assassination into a comprehensive narrative… 

The director of Oscar-winning documentary Icarus lays out the facts behind the killing and cover-up of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi after entering Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul – a mystery that made headlines around the world.

Bryan Fogel’s powerful documentary about the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, the Saudi Arabian Washington Post journalist, is an eye-opening thriller brew of corruption, cover-up, and real-world courage.

This is a documentary both tragic and poignant, not to mention maddening in that only a few underlings, and not the perpetrators, will pay for the crime committed in Istanbul. The evidence is all here for the world to see.
