Synopsis

The Young, The Faithful and The Fanatical. Way beyond any TV coverage or newspaper headlines, PATH OF BLOOD uses a treasure trove of Al Qaeda home-movie footage captured by the security services to show how brainwashed idealism and the youthful pursuit of adventure can descend into madness and carnage. Deep in the Saudi desert, young thrill-seekers at jihadi boot camp sign up to a plot to overthrow the Saudi government. They detonate three horrific car-bombs at Western compounds in Riyadh and become embroiled in a nail-biting game of cat and mouse with government forces. They film themselves in training, in action and possibly, most astonishing, of all, at play...There is gallows humour, (remember FOUR LIONS?), but this is no mockumentary. Produced by Mark Boal, journalist turned screenwriter of THE HURT LOCKER and ZERO DARK THIRTY and directed by international award winner Jonathan Hacker, PATH OF BLOOD is a chilling and revealing a chilling portrait of fanaticism in full flood. A Q&A session with director Jonathan Hacker and former Al Qaeda turned MI6 operative Aimen Dean follows the screening. The film is part-subtitled.
