Trivia

To prepare the film, Eva Husson went to Kurdistan and tried to meet all possible factions on the Kurdish side. The filmmaker did not want to go into contact with extremists because she felt that it was not about her. On the other hand, she went to the front, and to refugee camps, to collect the testimonies of women who had escaped. See more »
