Join the Committee to Protect Journalists for a Special Advance Screening of City of Ghosts. Directed, produced, and filmed by Academy Award-nominated and Emmy-winning filmmaker Matthew Heineman (Cartel Land), 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.
The evening will be opened with remarks from CPJ’s Emergencies Director, Maria Salazar Ferro, and the screening will be followed by a discussion with Director Matthew Heineman moderated by David Remnick, editor of The New Yorker and CPJ board member. A reception with food and drinks will follow.
