American Jihadist : The Film [78]

Writer, journalist, artist Jody Jenkins and his partner Mark Claywell, produced American Jihadist, a 68-minute documentary about the life of Isa Abdulla Ali, an American Jihadist.  Shown at the Slamdance Film Festival in Park City, Utah this past January (2010), the film earned the top prize for Best Documentary.

Jody and Mark contributed a piece for A Book About Death, and they say that in many ways, "the film is about death. The film is about someone who fought  and died – Isa was declared clinically dead – for his religion." This phenomenon – an American Jihadist – is placed directly in the face of the viewer.  Web site:
