Montesquieu Institute: from science to society

Film & Debate: City of Ghosts

The documentary City of Ghosts was shown on 14 September 2017. It tells the story of a group of civilians named 'Raqqa is Being Slaugthered Silently'. This group uses journalism to refute propaganda of IS. How do they do this and how does it influence their lives? Filmmaker Matthew Heineman followed the group in their fight to counteract the propaganda of IS.

Afterwards, a debate was held with Sinan Can and Martijn Kitzen.

Please note that this event was held in Dutch. For further information we kindly refer you to the Dutch version of our website by clicking 'Nederlands' in the right upper corner of this page.
