Nù Jìn” di Veysî ALTAY
(2014) – 60′ 

Nuova Vita, con lo slogan “ La donna è vita. La vita è resistenza e la resistenza è Kobanê”, raccontala vita quotidiana delle donne combattenti nella Women’s Protection Unit (YPJ), Elif Kobanê , Vîyan Peyman and Arjîn, nella loro battaglia contro Isis.
Il documentario riporta l’assalto dell’ISIS del 15 settembre 2014 e la resistenza di cinque mesi da parte dell’YPJ e delle Unità di difesa popolare (YPG) attraverso lo sguardo di tre combattenti donne.
