Meg Smaker's Documentary "Jihad Rehab" Pulled From Various Film Festivals After Criticism

Summary by Ground News
Jihad Rehab is a documentary that centers around four men who were accused of terrorism, imprisoned at Guantanamo Bay, and later sent to a rehabilitation center in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The film was initially scheduled to play at Sundance, South by Southwest and the San Francisco film festival. However, the film was pulled after criticism from Arab and Muslim filmmakers. "The bottom line is such," wrote Jude Chehab, a Lebanese-American filmmaker, in a review of Jihad Rehab that criticized Sundance for daring to feature it. "When I, a practicing Muslim woman, say that this film is problematic, my voice should be stronger than a white woman saying that it isn't. Point blank."
