City of Ghosts (2017): Matthew Heineman’s Docu of Powerful, Anonymous Activism

Amazon Studios and IFC Films will release Matthew Heineman’s documentary City of Ghosts July 14, 2017.

The film had its New York premiere at the 2017 Tribeca Film Fest, in April.

Directed, produced, and filmed by Oscar–nominated and Emmy-winning filmmaker Matthew Heineman, City of Ghosts offers a powerful portrait.

The movie follows the journey of “Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently”–a group of anonymous activists who banded together after their homeland was taken over by ISIS in 2014.

Relying on personal access, the film tells 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 evil.
