Recruiting For Jihad (2017)



Recruiting For Jihad, is an award-nominated documentary, offering a close-up look at Ubaydullah Hussain, who was convicted in 2017 with providing material support of terrorism by recruiting for ISIS. For a three year period, directors / journalists Adil Khan Farooq and Ulrik Imtiaz Rolfsen film Hussain's everyday activities promoting Jihadism until Norwegian authorities suddenly arrest him. When police seize the footage from the documentary as evidence, the filmmakers fight to protect the rights of independent journalists to pursue news stories in the public interest while protecting confidential sources. Their battle for press freedom goes all the way to Norway's Supreme Court. Recruiting for Jihad is a timely look at the destructive consequences of extremism.
