Dir. Hogir Hirori. Sweden, 2021. 1h 31m. Arabic/subs.

Armed with just a mobile phone and a gun, a group of volunteers risk their lives trying to save Yazidi women and girls who are being held by ISIS as sex slaves. A visceral and often edge-of-your-seat documentary that takes us into the heart of one of the most dangerous refugee camps in the Middle East, Al-Hol in Syria.

‘Sombre and emotive…A challenging watch, but visceral and powerful nonetheless.’ ★★★★ Marina Ashioti, Little White Lies

‘[A] sensitive, frequently harrowing observational documentary’ ★★★★ Simran Hans, The Observer
