Dugma - the Button

Norwegian journalist and documentary filmmaker Paul Salahadin Refsdal’s latest film offers a rare and shocking insight into the day to-day-lives of men preparing to become Al Qaeda suicide bombers. The film has raised ethical issues with broadcasters disturbed by its subjects and content. He spent six weeks embedded with members of Al nusra Front, the syrian branch of the extremist organisation in the war-ravaged Levantine nation. The result is the film DUGMA: THE BUTTON, which chronicles the day-to-day lives of four would-be suicide bombers and unravels their motivations. (Chris newbould)
