New Short Film "Jihadi Jane"

Set to Debut


A narrative portrayal of how sociopathic ambition distorts ideology, how the desire for love and community turns into the desire to kill, how who’s to blame is not so simple, all wrapped inside a noir fever-dream. With a twist ending this is a film intended to inspire introspection and debate, and to dig deeper into understanding why terror attacks happen. At a time when homegrown terror attacks of all stripes are on the rise around the world, as the saying goes, “We have met the enemy and he is us."
