If Morgan Spurlock has learned anything
from over 30 years of movie-watching, it’s that if the world
needs saving, it’s best done by one lonely guy, willing to
face danger head on, and take it down, action hero style. In
WHERE IN THE WORLD IS OSAMA BIN LADEN?, the Oscar nominated
filmmaker takes on a franchise even more lethal than
McDonald’s—Al Qaeda. And after this real life action
thriller is over, the world may never be the same.
So, with no military experience, knowledge or expertise, he
sets off to do what the CIA, FBI and U.S. military have all
failed to do: find the world’s most wanted man. Why take on
such a seemingly impossible mission? Simple—he wants to make
the world safe for his soon to be born child. But before he
finds bin Laden, he first needs to learn where he came from
and the environment and influences that shaped him.
Following bin Laden’s trail through some of the most
dangerous places in the world, Spurlock encounters both the
rational and the radical faces of the Middle East. He
interviews many people who embrace him on the streets and
welcome him into their homes, often experiencing their
cultures in ways that sharply contrast with the conventional
media images of the region. Spurlock finds they’re not that
different from American families, sharing the same hopes and
fears for their children that he has for his own.
WHERE IN THE WORLD IS OSAMA BIN LADEN? goes beyond shedding
light on the one man that has shaped the world’s perception
of a region and its people. Spurlock risks life and limb to
uncover the truth about bin Laden, and in doing so explores
the lines that divide, those that unite, and the countless
shades of grey between.
