Women's Voices Now is proud to be partnering with the 33rd Los Angeles Asian Pacific Film Festival! On May 3, 2017, at 6pm we will be co-hosting a screening of Reseba - The Dark Wind, a film by Hussein Hassan. WVN's Creative Director Leila Jarman will introduce the film.
Based on true events in 2014 when ISIS terrorists invaded the Shingal region in Iraqi Kurdistan and persecuted the Yezidi, a non-Muslim ethnic minority, razing their community and kidnapping their young women to sell at slave markets, Hassan forgoes abstracted, macro-level storytelling in favor of the concentrated microcosm of a family melodrama and a love story, illuminating the unfaltering resilience of a people long sidelined as collateral damage.
