Freelance journalist Theo Padnos in the documentary "Theo Who LIved."

The documentary “Theo Who Lived,” directed by David Schisgall, profiles the freelance American journalist Theo Padnos, who spent nearly two years held captive by Islamic fundamentalists in Syria. Fluent in Arabic, Padnos could communicate with his captors. Despite his harsh treatment, he’s able to see their human side and he retains a sense of humor in telling his story.
