Syria’s White Helmets

Life under the bombs with a team of White Helmet rescue workers in Syria’s most dangerous city, Aleppo.

A snapshot of the lives and motivations of a small group of people working to combat the horror in one of the most violent places on earth.

With the constant stream of atrocities coming out of Syria, this film about the White Helmets is a rare story of humanitarians working tirelessly to protect the people on the ground.

It explores why they risk their lives to save strangers, and how they carry on while so many others have either become disillusioned and fled, or become seduced by the radical ideologies and fight.
