Synopsis

Part of the burgeoning genre of ScreenLife films, stories which play out entirely on the screen of an electronic device like a laptop or mobile phone, Profile is a fictional, but very contemporary story, of the role technology plays in extremism and terrorism. British journalist Amy Whittaker decides to create a fake online profile in order to gather direct information about the terrorist group ISIS, claiming to be a recent Islamic convert. She is soon contacted by Bilel, an ISIS fighter from Syria, and they discuss everything from politics to their personal lives. When Amy finds herself developing romantic feelings for Bilel, she must decide whether to come clean about her online life which could end up putting her in severe danger. Tense and creative, this thriller is both a fascinating new way of consuming fiction whilst also touching upon important political and social themes around modern terrorism.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
