This Filmmaker Could Have Been Killed At Any Moment, But He Kept The Camera Rolling Anyway

For "Frontline" filmmaker Olly Lambert, what began as an interview with a Syrian rebel commander quickly transformed into an unprecedented encounter with the immediate aftermath of a bombing run by government jets. The resulting documentary provides what is possibly the most immersive account of the brutal Syrian civil war ever recorded, and is a must-watch for anyone looking to grasp the true impact of a modern conflict on a civilian population. WARNING: This video contains disturbing imagery that may upset some viewers. Please proceed with caution.
