An interesting point of view about ISIS.
This series is far from western standards in several ways: plot, direction, acting, photography, etc. This doesn't mean it is bad. It is different. The most important thing is the fact it offers an arabian point of view about ISIS. We usually focus our attention on "our" way to intend ISIS phenomenon and we don't pay attention to what may arabs think about islamic terrorism. This series offers a different point of view, helping us to understand how arabs feel in relation to islamists. I found very interesting the parallel between the point of view of the moderate islamic narrator and ISIS extreme interpretation of the Quran. It shows how also arabians don't agree with such extremist points of view, how they horrorified in front of summary capital executions, tortures and violence in general. Often medias offer us a distorted vision about arabs and thei faith, as if they are all terrorists. It doesn't correspond to reality at all. Too many times we don't (or we don't want...) distinguish between moderate muslims and islamists. This is a great mistakes, and this series helps us to have an idea about the sufference of muslim people forced to live under the threatening of ISIS. That's why it doesn't matter if the plot doesn't follows western standards, the actors are not the best performers on the field, the soundtrack was not written by Danny Elfman, and so on. What really matter is the message production tries to give us. We also have to consider this production is not intended for western people! The main aim of the producers was to show ISIS violence to arabians, and this makes a big difference!
