★★★★★ "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.
