City Of Ghosts Movie (2017)

City of ghosts movies talks about Syrian rebels who call themselves Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently risk their lives to document the atrocities committed by ISIS in their homeland.

Since 2014, ISIS has claimed the Syrian city of Raqqa as the capital of its so-called Caliphate—and, at the same time, been opposed by a band of local “citizen journalists” whose mission is to expose the Islamic State’s horrific crimes.
That group, known as “Raqqa Is Being Silently Slaughtered” (RBSS), is the focus of director Matthew Heineman’s sterling new documentary, which embeds itself with three RBSS members as they struggle to continue their work from Germany and Turkey, where they’ve been forced to flee thanks to death threats from ISIS.
Posting ghastly video and still photos of ISIS atrocities in order to elicit global outrage and opposition, RBSS risks literal life and limb in its battle with terrorism, and to a significant extent, so too does Heineman via his doc, which embraces its subject’s cause in order to effect change. Eschewing many non-fiction conventions (talking head interviews, textual summaries) for a chronologically fractured, up-close-and-personal depiction of courage under fire, it’s a film that inspires as much as it horrifies and infuriates.
