First Aired: March 31, 2009
"Recycle" explores the Jordanian city of Zarqa, considered a hotbed of Islamic extremism, through the eyes of fortysomething Abu Ammar, a veteran of the Afghan-Soviet War who struggles to support his two wives and eight children by selling discarded cardboard to a recycling plant. Shot over 2 1/2 years, the documentary tracks his falling fortunes; and also sheds light on Zarqa's most infamous son, the notorious terrorist Abu Musab al-Zarqawi (who was killed by U.S. forces in 2005).
