A group of young Muslim Americans in Texas discuss the disappearance and radicalization of their friend, Warren Clark, suspected of joining ISIS, in the trailer for “Ghosts of Sugar Land.”
The film won the Short Film Jury Award for non-fiction at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
The short documentary provides a haunting account of how the young teacher became radicalized and traveled to join ISIS in 2018, only to be captured in January by U.S.-backed forces in Syria during the campaign to liberate the last pockets occupied by the terror group.
“Ghosts of Sugar Land” premieres October 16 on Netflix.
