City of Ghosts

Oscar®-nominated director Matthew Heineman (Cartel Land) returns with another immersive documentary from the front lines of one of the most dangerous places on earth - Raqqa.

Here Heineman focuses his camera on the heroic citizen-journalists of Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently (RBSS), who take great risks in order to document Islamic State atrocities in their home city. While the work of RBSS has attracted international media attention, the stories of the individuals behind it, their lives and their personal strength through adversity, provide a unique perspective on the ongoing Syrian conflict.

A remarkably timely account of power, media tactics, and the enduring influence of journalists and activists.
