Jihad Jane
Wildcard Distribution has released the official trailer for Fastnet Film’s new documentary Jihad Jane.

The debut feature from Ciaran Cassidy is opening in cinemas across UK and Ireland on 14th February.

In March 2010, two American women, including one who named herself Jihad Jane, were arrested in a number of high-profile arrests in Waterford, Ireland, which were trumpeted by the US attorney’s office as “the new face of terrorism.” Facing huge jail sentences, the two women pleaded guilty but now for the first time ever, with unprecedented access, Jihad Jane tells the story of the most absurd terror cell ever to come together.

Jihad Jane is about the Internet and the online world and the damaged people who made plans to murder a Swedish cartoonist.  It shows how reality came crashing in, when they met in person for the first time. The film captures post 9-11 America and what emerges is a touching and haunting portrait of not only a damaged terror cell but the country and world that they emerged from.

The film was produced by Morgan Bushe for Fastnet Films in co-production with Silver Films AB and New Amsterdam Film Co. with funding from Screen Ireland, BAI, RTE, Section 481, Netherlands Film Fund, Netherlands Production Incentive, SVT and the Swedish Film Institute. Jihad Jane opens in UK and Irish cinemas on Friday 14th February.
