Hamburg Cell

August 23, 2004 9:45 PM

Wednesday is the world premiere of Antonia Bird's Hamburg Cell at the Edingburgh International Film Festival. It is a "fictionalised study of the September 11 hijackers."

Sure to be one of the most controversial films of the year, this semi-documentary study examines the lead-up to the cataclysmic events of September 11, 2001 - and specifically, the ideological shift of young Muslim Ziad Jarrah, from secular student in Germany, to Islamic ideologue, jihadist and hijacker. Insightful and considered, this film's neutral, non-partisan stance will almost certainly divide viewers, as will its depiction of real-life figures such as Mohamed Atta, but few will be able to deny its power, precision or courage. A remarkable and timely work.
