Followed by Q&A with filmmaker Ahmed Jamal and journalist Amit Roy

Ahmed Jamal and Ramesh Sharma's documentary The Journalist and the Jihadi: The Murder of Daniel Pearl documents the life of the reporter slain by terrorists.

The film compares and contrasts Pearl’s life with that of one of the terrorists, Omar Sheikh. Both were well educated, but where Pearl sought to bring people together through his work, Sheikh took a path that led to religious extremism.

The film shows how Pearl's death reverberated through much of the world. The film had its world premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival.
