23 Nov D FF “Heza (Strength)” – Derya Deniz, Iraq, 2022, 54’20”
This documentary is about a Yazidi woman who had been enslaved during the attack of the Islamic State (ISIS) on Shengal (Sinjar) which started on 3 August 2014. It tells what she’d lived through in the hands of ISIS, how she managed to escape, and how she carried on with her life after her escape.
Heza, never in her wildest dream thought she one day will be commanding hundreds of men and women fighters in to a battle against the worlds most dangerous jihadist terror organisation (ISIS) and defeat them.
This documentary is a living testimony of Heza’s pain and suffering and her fight for justice.
