Hawai‘i J20+ seeks monetary contributions to make possible a debut Free Screening of an important new documentary film on Syria, with a panel featuring its director and two members of Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently!
CITY OF GHOSTS
Official Selection. Sundance Film Festival (TRAILER)
J20+ is once again partnering with the Doris Duke Theatre, in support of their principled stance against President Trump's Muslim Ban. City of Ghosts brings attention to the real-life consequences of the Muslim Ban, under which no refugees from anywhere in the world are currently able to enter the US; and President Trump's withdrawal of US support for the opposition to Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Syrians fleeing Assad's murderous regime constitute the world's largest group of refugees.
City of Ghosts is an unprecedented, on-the-ground transmission from the front lines of one of the most important battles of our time: the fight against the Islamic State. It is a war being waged not only on the ground, but in the digital trenches of social media. Academy Award-nominated director Matthew Heineman (Cartel Land) takes viewers into the war zone of ISIS-occupied Syria, where a band of anonymous activists known as Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently wage a counteroffensive against the terrorist group's campaign of propaganda and misinformation. Armed with video cameras, these intrepid citizen journalists risk their lives to spread the truth about life under ISIS. The unforgettable images they've captured and the stories they have to tell are a wake-up call to the world.
