Upcoming Film

Escaping ISIS

  • Thursday, December 3, 2015
  • 12:00 noon CT
  • ACB ***230***

Frontline delivers a stunning look at the plight of women and children who are Yazidis, a religious minority that have been targeted by ISIS for particularly brutal treatment, as ISIS tries to impose upon them what it claims is a pure version of Islam, including harsh restrictions on women. Frontline’s Edward Watts spent two months in Iraq and Turkey filming the documentary and securing undercover footage. Meet Khalil al-Dakhi, a former Iraqi lawyer, who leads an effort to rescue women and children taken captive by ISIS. In Turkey, Abu Mahammed, a 26-year-old Syrian, heads another group against ISIS; rather than smuggling out women, he smuggles out footage shot secretly by him and his network of activists that provides a gripping look inside ISIS’ brutal reign. With ISIS continuing to seize and hold territory in Iraq and Syria, Escaping ISIS reveals  the gripping, first-hand accounts of women who escaped the group’s capture and enslavement.
