For the past several years a stateless revolution has swept through Rojava (Syrian Kurdistan) and its neighbor to the north Bakur (Turkish Kurdistan). The new system is not just run from the bottom-up, but based on feminist priorities. Yet in the midst of this massive social re-alignment, this new region is embroiled in a savage war against ISIS.
This brand new film, Kurdistan: Girls at War (2016), documents the stories and struggles of the women on the front lines, defending their people. This group of women refuse to be victims or stand by whilst other women are victimised.
Join us for the movie screening and short discussion about the state of the revolution, the war, and the ongiong struggles in Rojava.
