  • HELL ON EARTH: THE FALL OF SYRIA AND RISE OF ISIS

DESCRIPTION

Hell on Earth captures a unique portrait of life in war-torn Syria, from that of a family living under ISIS control that finally fled to Turkey, to Kurdish fighters in Sinjar and Shia militias in Iraq and even to al-Qaida-affiliated fighters in and around Aleppo and Raqqa. 

Award-winning filmmakers Sebastian Junger and Nick Quested meticulously identify the forces that led to the deadly conflict in Syria and facilitated the rise of the radical Islamists who are now organizing and inspiring terrorist operations around the world.
