os­car-nom­i­nated di­rec­tor Se­bas­tian Junger and Em­my­win­ning pro­ducer Nick Quested, who col­lab­o­rated on the war tril­ogy Restrepo, The Last pa­trol and Koren­gal, re­unite for this har­row­ing film about the sit­u­a­tion in Syria and the West’s role in the as­cent of

ISIS. By in­tro­duc­ing us to refugees try­ing to ex­tri­cate them­selves from unimag­in­able hor­ror, Hell on earth puts a hu­man face to an over­whelm­ing sit­u­a­tion and, while it’s in­cred­i­bly dif­fi­cult to watch, this im­por­tant, shat­ter­ing film will stay with you for a very long time.
