Also Known as Jihadi is a possible story of a man recounted via the places he passed through, as well as excerpts from documents: police interrogations, wire-tappings, surveillance… Turning the camera 180 degrees to follow a path, by filming not the subject of the film but rather what the subject saw. The clinic where he was born in Vitry, the social housing where he lived growing up, his high school, university, work place, and then his departure for Egypt, Turkey and finally the road to Aleppo, where he joined the al Nusra Front in 2012. A judiciary chronicle that progressively becomes a genre film, a slow-paced thriller where the viewer, faced with the incomprehensible, accepts feeling troubled, knowing—both intuitively and humanly—that the incomprehensible must have its own reasons.
