Euro­pean Film On ISIS to Be Pro­duced in Kur­dis­tan

The Kurdish Globe - - SPORTS -

The lo­cal pro­duc­tion of a new film “Be­fore the Walay”, which will cover the story of what has hap­pened in the years since ISIS arose in the re­gion, was an­nounced at a press con­fer­ence in Duhok.

Salih Arif, Di­rec­tor of Cinema Art in the Duhok Province, said the Ger­man film has now fin­ished film­ing—with around half be­ing shot in Ger­many and half in Kur­dis­tan. The film, which fo­cuses on the Kur­dis­tan re­gion of Iraq as well as Syria, is pro­duced by Mi­tos Film Com­pany and di­rected by Pro­fes­sor Peter Auf, an in­struc­tor at Stuttgart Uni­ver­sity in Ger­many. How­ever, the one mil­lion euro bud­get needed for fund­ing the film came from the Ger­man Min­isry of Cul­ture.

This will be the first cinema level doc­u­men­ta­tion of the story of those af­fected by ISIS in the Mid­dle East. The film is ex­pected to be shown to au­di­ences glob­ally. No­tably, the Kur­dish Di­rec­tor, Hus­sein Has­san, acted in the film.
