Our weekly documentary film curated by our editorial team at 21WIRE.
One of the untold stories from the Syrian War was been the scores of Syrian journalists killed while working as war reporters in their home country. At just 25 years old, journalist Khaled Alkhateb, was one such victim, having died during an Islamic State attack while reporting on the front line for international news channel RT Arabic. This film shows rare behind-the-scenes footage in Syria, and watches as family and media colleagues recall his tragic death and speak of his passion for life and his commitment to reporting with integrity, and also how the country’s young media students are standing on the shoulders of giants.
