Directed, produced, and filmed by Academy Award–nominated and Emmy–winning
filmmaker Matthew Heineman, City of Ghosts is a singularly powerful
cinematic experience that is sure to shake audiences to their core as it
elevates the canon of one of the most talented documentary filmmakers
working today. Captivating in its immediacy, City of Ghosts 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.
