Also Known as Jihadi follows the progress of a young man's journey from France to Syria, and back to France, where he is incarcerated for allegedly joining Daesh. Based on real events, and drawn from thousands of pages of judicial documents, the work employs the so-called landscape theory (fukeiron in Japanese). The character's paths to radicalism are rendered purely through a series of landscape shots filmed at the locations traversed by the subject: a biography determined not by what the subject did, but by what the subject saw, and one that questions how these landscapes reflect the social and political structures that are the backdrop for a journey of alienation and return.

Jamie Roberts' documentary filmed over the course of two years, which takes an intimate look at the people spreading extremist fundamentalism in Britain. In 2014 Roberts filmed Islamic extremist Abu Rumaysah, who is now one of the world's most wanted men and is suspected of being the British jihadi in the latest IS execution video. This film gains extraordinary access to a new wave of extremists, including Rumaysah, who are radicalising and grooming young British Muslims, and asks whether they really have non-violent aims, as they claim, or are a genuine threat to society.
