American Fugitive: The Truth About Hassan is a film, directed by Jean-Daniel Lafond, about an exiled American political activist named Dawud Salahuddin (also known as David Belfield and Hassan Abdulrahman).[1] Belfield has confessed to assassinating a former Iranian diplomat, who supported the Shah of Iran, in 1980.[2] [3]

Belfield unexpectedly appeared playing an exiled American political activist in the 2001 film Kandahar.[1][2][4] Lafond then traveled to Iran to film the documentary about him.
