Waiting Sisters in arms

After more than twenty years fighting with words and images, nearly 19 books, 21 documentaries and a short film, I decided to write a new page: to make my first feature film. It took three years to write, find funding, produce and show “Sisters of Weapons”. A women’s epic inspired by real events, the journey of survivors and fighters I met in Kurdistan. A story of sorority and camaraderie, between a survivor Yezidi and fighters from around the world to fight alongside the Kurds against the jihadists. A feminist war movie. To discover at the cinema in September.
