Robert Fisk was the first Western journalist to interview him. Brian Fyfield-Shayler taught him in grade school. Essam Deraz fought alongside him in Afghanistan. Of those who have met Osama Bin Laden, few have dared to talk about him — until now. Meeting Osama Bin Laden is a unique biography of one of the world's most notorious figures, told entirely by people who have known him. Produced by celebrated documentarian Zvi Dor-Ner (The People's Century) this film uses first-person accounts to trace the influential events in Bin Laden's life, from his privileged childhood in Saudi Arabia to his battles with the Soviet Union in Afghanistan, culminating in the events leading up to Sept. 11, 2001. With more than a dozen interviews, this film provides extraordinary insight into the man who masterminded the most deadly act of terrorism of our times.
