A Jihadi in the Family
45' | English & French versions | HD
Overnight, Calgary mother Christianne Boudreau became a “mother of a terrorist,” when her son Damian was killed fighting with ISIS. “I never saw it coming!” she says, echoing hundreds of mothers in Europe and North America whose children have left home to embrace a violent extremism.
A Jihadi in the Family examines how and why young people, who have grown up in western countries, are embracing violent extremism and the effect it’s having on the families. Shot in Canada, Belgium, France and Germany.
