An intimate portrait of a group of suicide bombers in Syria
DUGMA: The Button An intimate portrait of four very different suicide bombers working for Al Nusra in Syria. From the Saudi who loves singing and fried chicken to the 26-year-old British convert who is worried about his new wife, this remarkable film embeds with an unlikely bunch of ‘martyrdom seekers’. As each waits for their turn to go on a final mission, known by jihadists as ‘Dugma’, this film lays bare the faith and doubt at the core of men who give their life for their cause.
