City of Ghosts (2017) – directed by Matthew Heineman
in partnership with Reporters Without Borders / Reporter ohne Grenzen Deutschland

Captivating in its immediacy, CITY OF GHOSTS follows the journey of a handful of anonymous activists who banded together after their homeland was taken over by ISIS in 2014, forming the citizen journalist group الرقة تذبح بصمت Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently.

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.

Following the screening, a panel discussion including representatives of Reporters Without Borders will shed light on the current situation of media freedom in Syria and its perspectives after the end of IS rule over Raqqa.

"Could be the definitive Syria documentary" ★★★★★ - The Guardian

"A taut, immediate portrait of Syria’s citizen journalist heroes" ★★★★ - Washington Post

ABOUT THE FILM

A real-life international thriller, City of Ghosts exposes a new type of warfare: a battle over ideas, a fight for hearts and minds, a conflict over clicks and views. Captivating in its immediacy, it 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. 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.
