The movie will be accompanied by remarks by Dr. Pierre Atlas on the issue of terrorism. Atlas is an associate professor of political science at Marian University.
Inspired by true events, God’s Slave exposes the appalling cost of extremist acts carried out in the name of religious conviction. It is the story of Ahmed and David, two extremist characters, one Islamic and the other Jewish, who cross paths over the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Argentina.
Ahmed is operating undercover as a doctor and family man. David Goldberg is a cold-blooded and embittered Israeli Mossad agent who will stop at nothing to terminate the terrorist sleeper cell. Both men embark on parallel paths of martyrdom, blinded by hatred born of childhood trauma and prepared to sacrifice everything for their beliefs.
“Every action, every line, every glance alludes to a past that threatens to repeat itself…I was no longer a festival attendee, but both a terrorist and a victim, as unsure of whose crusade to champion as I was surprised by my conflicting loyalty.” 4.5 out of 5 stars
