Bin Laden - Dynasty of Terror
Made in the aftermath of 9/11, this 2004 documentary provides an essential portrait of the Bin Laden empire. No other film since has gained the same intimacy with the controversies surrounding the family and their connections. Occupying top positions in Saudi society, the power of the Bin Laden family cannot be overstated. At the same time he was blowing up skyscrapers, they were building them. Whilst one brother allegedly provided refuge for Al Qaeda members in Brazil, Haydar Bin Laden’s bank “was used to move money for Osama”, says former US official, Jonathon Winner. All the while, the US government were reluctant to investigate, supposedly due to having ties with Saudi power figures.
