Number 73

Yezidi’s are a predominantly Kurdish ethnic group, upholding a six thousand year old ancient religion of Yazidism. Judged to be “devil-worshippers,” the ethnic minority has faced its worse oppression yet with the rise of ISIS in recent history. In the plight of escaping genocide, mass execution and enslavement, the Yezidi have been scattered in Kurdistan. In this documentary we follow one young man to his besieged village to save his elderly parents, whom were left behind by the first wave of refugees.
