From ACADEMY AWARD-WINNING director Bryan Fogel (ICARUS), The Dissident is a critically acclaimed edge-of-your-seat, adrenaline-filled thriller that plays out at the highest levels of power, exposing the labyrinth of deceit behind the murder of Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Featuring never before seen surveillance footage and unprecedented access to a wealth of other damning information previously unavailable to the public, Fogel weaves a story of courage, money, power, tyranny, love, and technology run amok. The Dissident is the untold story of the crime that shook the world.

  • Eye Opener

    I thought it was a bit slow in the beginning, but I waited. I’m glad I did. It was an eye opener. I hate that no streaming service will buy this documentary, so more people can access it. Also, beware that many of the bad reviews on here are trolls.
  • Amazing film

    This one hits hard. Well worth watching. Look at all the bad reviews they are all from the Saudi propaganda machine. It’s comical.

    From what I saw I think Al-Saud family is the Middle East mafia.

  • Speaking truth to power

    By @BrianZHouston
    A remarkable and guy-wrenching film. Celebrating those willing to risk their lives for the sake of truth is more important than ever. I recommend this film to all, masterful.
