Before it is released publicly, the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia is pleased to present one of a few selected private screenings around the country of National Geographic Documentary Films’ Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria and the Rise of ISIS, from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker and best-selling author Sebastian Junger and his Emmy-winning filmmaking partner, Nick Quested. The film chronicles Syria’s descent into the unbridled chaos that allowed the rise of the Islamic State, better known as ISIS. This gripping and insightful work captures the Syrian war’s harrowing carnage, political and social consequences, and, most importantly, its human toll. Edited from almost 1,000 hours of footage, the personal stories of survival and tragedy follow an extended family in their desperate attempts to flee Syria. The filmmakers take the viewer inside the aggression with gripping footage of Kurdish fighters in Sinjar, Shia militias in Iraq and even al-Qaida-affiliated fighters in and around Aleppo and Raqqa.
