In August 2014, the video execution of American journalist James Foley by ISIS exposed the world to the new face of terror. Directed by Foley's childhood friend Brian Oakes,, this powerful, gut-wrenching documentary tells Foley's tragic story through interviews with his family, friends and colleagues, while his fellow hostages reveal the chilling details of their captivity.Written by
James Foley was one of those crazy-brave journalists who are the very backbone of any legitimate 21st century Democracy- someone who quite literally put it all on the line to tell us all just what the f--- was REALLY going on around the world. DEMOCRACY NOW! was where I first saw Foley, and I was impressed from the first; like Amy Goodman and everyone else I've discovered on DEMOCRACY NOW!, Foley risked his life to get to the Truth and to present it to the world. His final moments are hard to watch (and here I'm talking about what we see in JIM: THE JAMES FOLEY STORY; I have no morbid interest whatsoever in seeing the rest). This documentary is as much a tribute to the Spirit of True Journalism as it is to the man who inspired it.
