WHERE IN THE WORLD IS OSAMA BIN LADEN? (M)

USA, 2008 (MIFF 2008, Documentaries)

Director: Morgan Spurlock

WHERE IN THE WORLD IS OSAMA BIN LADEN? (M)

“If I've learned anything from big budget action movies it's that complicated global problems are best solved by one lonely guy.” - filmmaker Morgan Spurlock

Having lost the weight from the fast food experiment that was Super Size Me, Morgan Spurlock returns in an attempt to track down the Western world's arch nemesis, Osama Bin Laden. On the news of his wife's pregnancy, Spurlock reacts how most men would - he heads straight to the Middle East; not in an attempt to escape his responsibilities, but instead to find Bin Laden and make the world a safer place for his child.

Travelling through Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Morocco, Jordan, Afghanistan and Pakistan, Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden? tries to discover how the world's most wanted man was created, and just what makes him tick.

Filmmaker Morgan Spurlock is a guest of the festival.
