Trinity Film Present Shocking New Documentary PATH OF BLOOD Exposing An Unprecedented Insight into Al Qaeda Suicide Bombers
Today Trinity Film announces that it will be releasing the powerful and shocking new documentary Path of Blood in UK cinemas from 13th July.
Directed by BAFTA winning acclaimed filmmaker Jonathan Hacker (Secret Agent, Timewatch, Britain’s First Suicide Bombers) and based on his book of the same title, PATH OF BLOOD, the film depicts Islamic terrorism as it has never been seen before. Drawn from a hoard of jihadi home-movie footage that was captured by Saudi security services, it is the story of Muslim terrorists targeting Muslim civilians, who are brought to justice by Muslim security agents-- a stark reminder that all who are touched by terrorism are victimized by it.
Path of Blood is executive produced by Mark Boal (Zero Dark Thirty, The Hurt Locker, Detroit), Abdulrahman Alrashed and Adel Alabdulkarim, edited by Peter Haddon, with narration from Samuel West (Darkest Hour) and voiceover from Tom Hollander (In the Loop).
A powerful and sometimes shocking cinematic experience, Path of Blood reveals how brainwashed youths, fuelled by idealism and the misguided pursuit of adventure, can descend into madness and carnage. The raw, unvarnished footage, to which the filmmakers negotiated exclusive access, captures young thrill-seekers at a jihadi “boot camp” deep in the Saudi desert, having signed on to overthrow the Saudi government. They plot to detonate car bombs in downtown Riyadh, become embroiled in a game of cat-and-mouse with government forces and, as their plans unravel, resort to ever more brutal tactics.
Adopting a strictly objective approach, the film doesn’t editorialize and contains no interviews or “talking heads” commentary. The home video footage was shot by the terrorists themselves, allowing viewers to see them in all their complexity, while compelling audiences to draw their own conclusions.
Director Jonathan Hacker said “When I first saw this amazing footage I knew there was a film there waiting to be made. After a long journey I am very pleased to be releasing Path of Blood with Trinity to UK audiences.”
Cedric Behrel of Trinity Film said “Trinity are proud to be part of this important project. It is a thrilling and thought-provoking film, essential viewing for anyone who wants to understand one of the most important issues of our age.”
Path of Blood will be released in UK cinemas from 13th July. For cinema listings please check here.
