Description Banned in France (released as 'Salafistes'), JIHADISTS goes deep into the heart of the Salafi movement, to reveal the inner workings of extremist Islam. A pair of Western filmmakers were granted unparalleled access to fundamentalist clerics of Sunni Islam who proselytize for a "purer" form of Islam--including jihad of the sword--in Mali, Tunisia, Iraq and Afghanistan. Their theoretical interpretations are juxtaposed against images and footage from recruitment videos to show the hardline application of sharia law. Without experts contextualizing these events, the film, which inspired the Oscar-nominated feature, "Timbuktu", paints a stark portrait of everyday life under jihadi rule. Co-directed by Lemine Ould Salem of Mauritania and France's François Margolin, an earlier version of the film was released in the days following the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris where it was mistakenly interpreted as an empathetic portrayal of jihadism.

I am a member of the English speaking world, and this film was one of the highlights of my viewing of the year. I am a Westerner, but I have traveled to and been to much of the Middle East, including parts of Iraq and Afghanistan. I have been to Iraq several times, and have seen how their people have been subjected to this war, and the way in which the US has supported this war. The images of the Iraqi people being killed and tortured were hard to watch, and I believe the film was very well done. However, it did not portray the Iraqi people in a fair light. The "innocent" people were shown as the "good guys" in the film, and were only shown as being good in the eyes of the Americans. In addition, there was no attempt made to portray the Iraqi people as being part of a "civilized" society. The American and British military were shown as the good guys, and the Iraqi people were portrayed as the bad guys. I believe the filmmakers did not realize that the people who were in the film were just the "bad guys." I do not believe the film should be shown in schools, and I believe that it should be shown in the movies in the USA, but not in schools. I think the filmmakers should have told the story in a more balanced way, and that the film should have portrayed the Iraqi people as being part of a civilized society. This film did not show the Iraqis as being good people, and should have been shown as an unbiased documentary about the Iraq War. The film should have been about the Iraqi people, not the Americans. This is a good film, and should be shown in schools, but I think it should be shown in the USA, not in schools.
