Netflix released the trailer and key art for the Netflix original short documentary, The White Helmets.
A Netflix original short documentary, set in Aleppo, Syria and Turkey in early 2016. As the violence intensifies, The White Helmets follows three volunteer rescue workers as they put everything on the line to save civilians affected by the war, all the while wracked with worry about the safety of their own loved ones. Moving and inspiring, The White Helmets (by Oscar-nominated team Orlando von Einsiedel and Joanna Natasegara) is both a snapshot of the harrowing realities of life for ordinary Syrians who remain in the country, and a humbling portrait of the power of the human spirit.
The film premiered this past weekend at the Telluride Film Festival and will have its international premiere at the 2016 TIFF. The White Helmets launches globally on Netflix on September 16, 2016.
