SCREENING VIRTUAL & IN PERSON OPENING NIGHT - THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2020 | 7:30PM | METROPOLITAN'S ISIS THEATRE


THE DISSIDENT, from Academy Award®-winning director Bryan Fogel (ICARUS), is an 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. Khashoggi was a principled reformer who sought to create a more open society in his homeland, and who was ultimately murdered for his vocal opposition to the Saudi government. Featuring never before seen surveillance footage and unprecedented access to a wealth of other damning information previously unavailable to the public, Fogel earned the trust of those closest to the tragedy to weave together this story of courage, money, power, tyranny, love, and technology run amok.
