The lack of Kurds' struggle against ISIS
17 June 2017 | by (Bergen) – See all my reviews

Unfortunately, the role of the Kurds is not mentioned in the film. One can not make a documentary about Syrias civil war and Isis without telling the Kurds part in it. It does not get any good, no matter how good it is. The documentary is very well made, but as mentioned, it does not cover the whole story, espousely when it comes to the crack on ISIS.
