Since 2013, the Kurds have been systematically terrorised by IS, as the caliphate pushed deeper into their ancestral homeland. Letters from Kurdistan brings together three uniquely tragic perspectives on the war ravaging the Middle East. A lonely sniper is haunted by the violence he has inflicted doing what he must to defend his people; three teenage Yazidi girls remain defiant despite suffering unimaginable cruelties at the hands of their captors; and a majority female militia defy expectations by holding out against the caliphate’s siege of Kobani. A harrowingly intimate insight into the mental as well as physical toll wrought by a most violent and brutal conflict.
