Rare archive footage of Palmyra shows full extent of Isis destruction.
Footage has been released showing a rare glimpse of the ancient Syrian site of Palmyra before the destruction caused by Isis. Isis captured Palmyra in the summer of 2015, along with the modern town and some oilfields nearby. The group, who follow an extreme version of Sunni Islam, considered Palmyra’s ancient ruins, predating Islam, as idolatrous. In addition to destroying ancient buildings, they also defaced and decapitated statues.

FIREHORSE ARC AND SHUTTERSTOCK STRIKE EXCLUSIVE DEAL

“This is an important archive to bring to a global audience,” said Tom Spota Director of Video Acquisition at Shutterstock. “It is a privilege to be able to offer such diverse and rare footage to film and TV makers around the world. The importance of what ARC has captured on film, before and during the current changes taking place in the Middle East, will stand as a powerful record of everyday life and also lost treasures.”

Mouna Mounayer and Najat Rizk, co-owners of ARC, added, “the body of content we offer has particular significance and resonance right now and will continue to have in the coming years as many of our clips are of places that are no longer accessible or have been destroyed, such as the heritage sites of Syria and Iraq.
No one will be able to capture these places and the life around them in the same way again. Working with Shutterstock we will be able to give a greater number of media professionals access to this valuable archive.”

Firehorse ARC and Shutterstock, a leading global provider of imagery and music, have agreed to a five-year licensing deal.

Thousands of years of history have left the European continent with a rich legacy of culture and religion. Our footage takes you from its eastern-most fringes – from Turkey’s minority Christian population in the Syrian borderlands and the religious life of divided Cyprus, to the museums, monuments, churches and cityscapes of major metropolises like London, Paris and Rome.

Zoroastrians around the world commemorate the death of Zarathustra or as the Greek’s called him Zoroaster. Zoroaster was a Persian religious reformer and founder of Zoroastrianism or Parsiism (as it is known in India). Zoroaster’s, monotheistic concept of God has attracted the attention of modern historians of religion, who have speculated on the connection between his teaching and Judaism and Christianity.
