By The Miniplex (other events)

11 Dates Through Aug 30, 2017

From the Oscar nominated director of CARTEL LAND, this new documentary follows the journey of “Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently," a handful of anonymous activists who banded together after their homeland was taken over by ISIS in 2014. Like a real-life international thriller with astonishing, deeply personal access, this is the story of a brave group of citizen journalists as they face the realities of life undercover, on the run, and in exile, risking their lives to stand up against one of the greatest evils in the world today. Rated R, 92 mins. "Provides a grim reminder of what journalism should look like, and why its stakes are literally life and death." - Washington Post

"City of Ghosts makes a strong case for being the definitive documentary of Syrian Civil War to date... It’s what THE WHITE HELMETS should have been." - POV

"This is formidable filmmaking, and Heineman has become one of our boldest, and interesting, documentarians." - S.F. Chronicle

"Shows us what journalism can do in the face of evil. Its message is haunting, humane, and ultimately hopeful." - Entertainment Weekly
