Path of Blood is an exposing and chilling film, turning real home video footage recovered from Al Qaeda suicide bombers into a cinematic experience, one that you won’t forget. We’ve seen the aftermath of attacks on the news and perhaps even become desensitized to their violence but how will you feel in seeing the perpetrators casually joke and play games? It may surprise you, how startling it really is.
To celebrate Path of Blood’s release on DVD, we’ve taken a look back at the Top 10 Documentaries of 2018. It’s been a fascinating year of cinema for documentary, ranging from the psychology of terrorism to local acts of bravery and utterly revealing personal stories.
Path of Blood (Jonathan Hacker)
Exposing the dark side of the human soul, Path of Blood reveals Al Qaeda as you’ve never seen it before. Using a treasure trove of Al Qaeda home-movie footage captured by the security services, this haunting documentary shows how brainwashed idealism and the youthful pursuit of adventure can descend into madness and carnage.
PATH OF BLOOD is available now On Demand & DVD #pathofbloodfilm www.pathofbloodfilm.com
Nae Pasaran! (Felipe Bustos Sierra)
Nae Pasaran! is the unlikely story of how a group of pensioners from East Kilbride became Commanders of the Republic of Chile. The brave stand that the workers took against Chile’s General Pinochet and his repressive regime from a Rolls-Royce factory in East Kilbride during the 1970s is grippingly documented, as is their realization only years later of the genuine impact that their actions had.
