Part of the Seventh Art Stand
Directed by Hussein Hassan. Iraq. 2016. 92 min. Kurdish and Arabic with English subtitles.
The Dark Wind is the first feature narrative dealing with the genocide against the Yazidi people living in the Kurdish Shingal region through the so-called Islamic State. A young Yazidi couple, Reko and Pero, get separated when the Islamic State attacks their village in the Shingal region of Iraqi Kurdistan. Many of the villagers become casualties under the attack and the young women, including Pero, are captured and sold as slaves. Reko searches endlessly for Pero until he finally finds her in Syria. They find shelter in a refugee camp, but Pero is deeply traumatized by her ordeal and the future of their love is uncertain.
