Kurdish Female Fighters in Rojava

In the past few years, there have been many good films about the Kurds in Rojava (East Kurdistan) and Bakur (North Kurdistan), I Want to Live (Karzan Kardozi) and Zer (Kazim Öz) and this Film is among the top three that I have seen so far. Hope to see more films in the future about Rojava and Bakur.

Minefields of Memories and Explosives

Over 7,000 women and girls were taken captive in one swoop by Daesh in the Sinjar Mountains of Iraqi Kurdistan in 2014. Over half of them are still missing. Some escaped from captivity and formed a unit of peshmerga fighters to strike back at those who separated them from their families, killed their loved ones, and starved, tortured, raped and beat them into submission. Girls of the Sun follows these women into battle, through Daesh tunnels, and into minefields of memories as well as explosives. The women are led by Bahar, a former lawyer, who is searching for her son. They are joined by a French war correspondent who has painful war nightmares of her own. The dark experiences and shared suffering of the women strengthens their bond as they face dangers that would make most people quail. This gripping and emotional film is based on the truth. It deftly weaves between the past and present in realistic flashbacks. Camerawork revels in the mountains and mist as well as fights and close-ups. A true to life female perspective on fighting war from the standpoints of director, actors and characters. Fresh from an appearance at Cannes, I attended the international premiere of the film at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival. The director spoke of the challenges of making a film on a four million Euro budget and bringing people together with different cultural touchstones.

It's a good movie, but...

It'd been even better without the reporter. It felt a bit like she only was there to make the movie relevant to white people or something, because her story line didn't really add anything. Maybe it's because it never developed into anything interesting, or because her character just felt out of place (especially at the end). I don't know. Apart from this, it's a very beautiful, and also very painful movie to watch. The cinematography ranges from good to great, same goes for costume design and scenery. This movie features (somewhat) graphic depictions of torture, sexual abuse, suicide and armed battle. Watch with caution.
