Movie Info

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 but reality comes crashing in, when they actually meet 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.

  • Allows for a greater understanding of these vulnerable women, revealing the mentalities which shaped their actions and provides an insight into the very real possibility of other susceptible people being similarly affected.

  • Cassidy's fascinating documentary ... touches down on the strange intersection of the dark web, alienation, and the grey area between free speech and hate speech

  • This film about her life to date is an engrossing documentary which never loses a feel for the human texture behind the headlines.
