Best of 2017: CITY OF GHOSTS

Dir: Matthew Heineman
United States / 2017 / 92mins

★★★★★ "The definitive Syria documentary" - The Guardian

When their city was taken over by ISIS in 2014, a group of anonymous Syrian activists banded together under the name ‘Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently’ and dedicated themselves to getting the word out to the world through social media.

Award-winning filmmaker Matthew Heineman (Cartel Land) follows these citizen journalists as they face the realities of life undercover, on the run, and in exile, risking their lives to expose the horrors of life under ISIS rule.

Exposing the media war being fought between ISIS’s propaganda team and the RBSS journalists, City of Ghosts is captivating in its immediacy.

City of Ghosts is back on the DocHouse screen as part of our Best of DocHouse 2017 season
