Dir. Edoardo Richard Grasselli-Moyse (UK, 2018) 12:00
In May 2017, Charlie left everything behind to go and fight against ISIS in Rojava, Kurdistan, a Middle Eastern utopia based on the notions of feminism and equality. Charlie recalls what it is like to be at war with ISIS and takes us to an outpost in the battle of Raqqa, ISIS capital. As Charlie re-adapts to ordinary British life, his comrades in Syria are still fighting, and paying the price.
