Critically acclaimed documentary JIHAD JANE to launch on digital platforms on May 11th


Following its cinema release earlier this year, Ciaran Cassidy’s critically acclaimed documentary Jihad Jane will be available on various digital platforms in the UK and Ireland from May 11th.

Check out the trailer for Jihad Jane below.

In March 2010, two American women, including one who named herself ‘Jihad Jane’, were arrested in a number of high-profile arrests in Waterford, Ireland, which were trumpeted by the US attorney’s office as ‘the new face of terrorism’. Facing huge jail sentences, the two women pleaded guilty but now for the first time ever, with unprecedented access, Jihad Jane tells the story of the most absurd terror cell ever to come together.

Jihad Jane is about the Internet and the online world and the damaged people who made plans to murder a Swedish cartoonist.  It shows how reality came crashing in, when they met in person for the first time. The film captures post 9-11 America and what emerges is a touching and haunting portrait of not only a damaged terror cell but the country and world that they emerged from.

The film was produced by Morgan Bushe for Fastnet Films in coproduction with Silver Films AB and New Amsterdam Film Co. with funding from Screen Ireland, BAI, RTE, Section 481, Netherlands Film Fund, Netherlands Production Incentive, SVT and the Swedish Film Institute.
