Directors Ulrik Imtiaz Rolfsen and Adel Khan Farooq speak about the rise of extremism, the making off their film and the importance of investigative journalism and protection of sources.

Filmmakers Rolfsen and Farooq shadowed the well-known Norwegian Muslim extremist Ubaydullah Hussain for over three years. They talk about their approach to Ubaydullah and their attempts to stimulate discussion and infiltrate his inner thoughts. We also speak with the filmmakers about the confiscation of the documentary footage by the police to be used as evidence and the court case that followed.
