Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria and the Rise of Isis

Hell on Earth: The Fall of Syria and the Rise of ISIS is a powerful new feature documentary from Academy Award-nominated filmmaker and best-selling author Sebastian Junger and his Emmy-winning filmmaking partner, Nick Quested, chronicling Syria’s descent into the unbridled chaos that allowed the rise of the Islamic State, better known as ISIS, in Iraq and Syria.

Pulling from nearly 1,000 hours of stunningly visceral footage, Junger and Quested, who previously collaborated on a trio of films about war (Restrepo, The Last Patrol and Korengal), capture the Syrian war's harrowing carnage, political and social consequences and, most importantly, its human toll, while painting an alarming picture of the West's role in the creation of ISIS.

Through exclusive interviews with activists, journalists, diplomats, human rights workers, politicians and ordinary citizens, as well as historical archival footage, Hell on Earth captures a unique portrait of life in war-torn Syria. We meet a family living under ISIS control that finally fled to Turkey, Kurdish fighters in Sinjar and Shia militias in Iraq - and even al-Qaida-affiliated fighters in and around Aleppo and Raqqa. Junger and Quested meticulously identify the forces that led to the deadly conflict in Syria and facilitated the rise of the radical Islamists who are now organising and inspiring terrorist operations around the world.
