Watch Essential Killing
- 1 hr 23 min
In this 2010 Polish fictional film that takes a humanizing look at those the world labels terrorists, a young Taliban fighter is taken as a prisoner of war, but manages to escape from his American and European captors during a transfer to another facility in a country far from his home. Forced to kill in order to protect his own life, Mohammed now finds himself in a dangerous world in a country he does not understand and amongst people whose language he does not speak. In the process, he may realize that the motivations behind the organization he has devoted his life to fighting for may not be as they seem.
