Letters from Shengal | AKFF

Amidst the horrors of the Islamic State's invasion of Shengal, five brave partisans from different countries come together to fight against the oppressors and liberate the Ezidi people from slavery and genocide in this inspiring tale of courage and hope.

In the Summer of 2014, the Islamic State invaded Shengal, the Ezidi capital in Kurdistan (Iraq). The plan was to exterminate the ethnical/religious minority who were despised and called “devil worshippers’. 5000 Ezidi men have been killed, and 7000 women and children have been taken into slavery. This film tells Shengal’s liberation through the stories of five partisans who are five archetypes of the many that came to fight against the Islamic State from several different countries.
