This is a 2016 documentary by Ross Kemp, English actor, author and BAFTA award-winning investigative journalist. He traveled to Iraq and Syria to meet the people who do most of the actual fighting against the Islamic State. The Kurdish people are at the front lines of the battle against the reactionary forces of Islamism. Hated by the dictatorial regimes of Saddam Hussein, Bashar Al-Assad and Recep Erdogan, the Kurds have been a oppressed people with no native homeland. In North Syria they follow a different path then their Iraqi counterparts. Syrian Kurdistan is building a new society, one that is not based on capitalism or a bourgeois democracy!
