Path of Blood

When: Tue., Sept. 18 2018

Path of Blood centers on young thrill-seekers who sign up for a jihadi boot camp and subsequently plot to overthrow the Saudi government. They detonate three car bombs at Western compounds in downtown Riyadh and become embroiled in a nail-biting game of cat and mouse with government forces. As their plans unravel, they become even more desperate. The documentary film, which shows tonight at 7:30 at the Capitol Theatre, uses Al Qaeda home-movie footage captured by the security services to show how "brainwashed idealism and the youthful pursuit of adventure can descend into madness and carnage." Tickets cost $9.75. (Niesel)
