Producer: Bahman Ghobadi, 2015, Syria / Iraq, 73 minutes

The fate of thousands of people is unified under the tarpaulins of the refugee camps in Kobanê and in Shingal after ISIS attacked their cities, homes and families. Kurdish filmmaker Bahman Ghobadi [A Time for Drunken Horses] has given eight children the opportunity to use a camera to tell their own stories. Each film gives us a glimpse into the plight of the children, as seen through their own eyes. Their stories tell of young people with their whole lives ahead of them, though they’ve already lost almost everything.

Director: Rekesh Shahbaz, 2015, Kurdistan, 23 minutes

Their road paved by genocides, mass executions and enslavement, the rise of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria left countless families of the Yezidi minority in Kurdistan scattered. We follow a young man back to his besieged village to save his elderly parents who were left behind by the first wave of refugees.
