A documentary that follows the efforts 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 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.Written by
A creation of white male editors in the big newsrooms reinventing the story of the savage brown man unable to transcend his (never hers) monkey ways. Sure, on the shallow surface the masses look it is the story of the brave citizens documenting whatever. But the subtext is they can't do anything without the West's Internet, Facebook, iPhone, Adobe, and so on.
And in a way the white male editors are right. These are not street urchins. These are the boys of the nomenklatura, the future rules of the land if the change comes as expected. They are going to be the prosperous businessman with a London apartment and Oxford educated children. Or the chief inspector for the new state orthodoxy, or Ministry of Education. And they are not afraid to have the same values as the white male editors: manly males and the woman limited to either breeder or entertainer.
And the boy reporters are at the same time victims. They are not telling their stories, but the stories the white male editor needs in order to be paid in gala trips, scholarships or even a refugee visa.
The only losers are the martyrs. Children pushed forward by shady revolutionaries. Dead so they can feed a new Holy War.
