"Also Known AS Jihadi" (2017) Eric Baudelaire

Freelance journalist Ane Irazabal, together with the journalist Karlos Zurutuza and Jaime Otamendi will talk on issues linked to Eric Baudelaire's film Also Known As Jihadi, based on their own professional experience as journalists in places in conflict.

Also Known As Jihadi (2017) is a 99 minute film that tracks the itinerary of Abdel Aziz Mekki (all names have been changed to protect identities), a young man from the outskirts of Paris, who flew to Egypt in 2012 without telling his family. Abdel Aziz eventually made his way to Syria, joined the ranks of the Al Nusra Front, a precursor of the Islamic State, and facilitated the crossing of the Syrian border for several of his hometown friends. The film is not the portrait of a man, for he remains (almost entirely) off camera. It is a fragmentary look at a trajectory, one that is also known as Jihadi.
