Theo Padnos, the American journalist captured by al-Qaeda in 2012 and brutally tortured is the subject of director David Schisgall’s latest documentary, Theo Who Lived. Unlike far too many other journalists from the west, Padnos managed to survive long enough to eventually be released twenty two months later. In Theo Who Lived, we get to see Padnos return to the Middle East as he retraces the physical and emotional steps of his harrowing journey…
I’m most eager to find out about all that it really took for Padnos to make it out alive. I find it amazing that he’s able to go back to the place that must hold so many painful memories. I don’t think I’d be able to return.
Happy Film Loving 🙂
