The Islamic State — Why IS remains A Threat

The Islamic State — Why IS remains A Threat

A weekly documentary film curated by the editorial team at 21WIRE.


Is the world facing a resurgence of the so-called Islamic State (IS)?

In northern Syria, many former IS fighters are imprisoned in hard-to-secure prisons. Among their children, the next generation of jihadists is growing up.

A severe earthquake in February 2023 brought northern Syria back into the international spotlight. It’s a region that has long gone unnoticed, despite the fact that the so-called Islamic State (IS), a terrorist organization, had its stronghold here.

A gripping narrative of resilience and struggle, filmmaker Kawa Akrawi takes viewers on a journey through northeastern Syria’s autonomous “Rojava” region. Once the heartland of the so-called Islamic State (IS), now a battleground for ideology and security, this area harbours the remnants of a defeated caliphate and the ominous specter of its resurgence.

With Kurdish militia, the YPG, striving to maintain stability amid Erdogan’s relentless assaults and the looming threat of radicalization within sprawling camps, the region stands at a crossroads, balancing on the edge of a precarious peace.
