About the film | The UnRedacted
Meg Smaker / united states / 2022 / 108 mins / Arabic, English

A group of men trained by Al-Qaeda are transferred from Guantanamo to the world’s first rehabilitation centre for “terrorists” located in Saudi Arabia

Filmed over three years, with unprecedented access, this film is a complex and nuanced exploration of the men we have heard so much about but never heard from. With empathy and extraordinary access, this film is a powerful document of how individuals and societies face the far-reaching consequences of conflict.

“Not the best documentary of the year. The best film of the year. Full stop. Meg has created a masterpiece. Don’t let anyone tell you how to feel about it; until you see it for yourself. This film will enlarge your soul.” – Michael Dunaway, Paste Magazine.

Live Q&A with Director Meg Smaker.
Hosted by Doc Edge Ambassador Neil Waka.
