Documentary: Ground Zero Syria – pain, blood and sorrow
In 2012 VICE commissioned photographer and videographer Robert King to document the civil war that has been ravaging Syria for the past two years.
Largely based on Aleppo, King’s footage of the violent conflict that continues to unfold in the region is perhaps one of the most thorough and brutally honest documents of a war that is increasingly destabilizing the Middle East as it spills over into neighbouring Turkey and Lebanon.
This full-length version of Ground Zero Syria combines all six parts of the series to offer a startling glimpse into a chaotic war with no clear end in sight.
Parts 1-6: Ground Zero Syria
Part 7: Snipers of Aleppo
Part 8: The Pillaging of Umayyad Mosque
Part 9: Aleppo’s Child Nurse
