The White Helmets Short

I have watched this movie once. This was on .


As daily airstrikes pound civilian targets in Syria, a group of indomitable first responders risk their lives to rescue victims from the rubble.

To save a life is to save all of humanity

The White Helmets


We’re introduced to a couple of guys who are part of “The White Helmets”, a group of Syrian first responders who dig through the rubble left from airstrikes. They’re looking for survivors, but often they’re removing bodies – it’s perilous and sickening work. Interspersed with interviews and close footage, it’s raw and tragic. Part of the story follows them at a training camp in Turkey; although they’re safe, there are intimate personal connections to the horrors faced by their colleagues still helping in the war zone.
