IDA Documentary Screening Series presents ‘The Dissident’


October 20, 2020 • 6:00 pm PDT


The International Documentary Association (IDA) is bringing together both films and their creators to industry insiders and film enthusiasts from October to January. This year’s Screening Series takes place online and is accessible from anywhere in the world. Films are available on demand for IDA members exclusively. Post-film conversation live streams with filmmakers and subjects are open to the public for FREE.

THE DISSIDENT, from Academy Award-winning director Bryan Fogel (Icarus), is an adrenaline-filled documentary 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 together this story of courage, money, power, tyranny, love, and technology run amok.

Join Director/Writer/Producer Bryan Fogel for a digital conversation moderated by Christian Blauvelt, Managing Editor at IndieWire. Closed-captioned and ASL interpreted.
