The Road to Raqqa

After five years of war, Islamic State’s (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) de-facto capital, Raqqa, has been surrounded. On the east side of the city, the road to Raqqa passes the base of the Kurdish women’s protection units and a base for foreign volunteers, as well as a field hospital. Our film crew came here to obtain exclusive frontline footage and talk to the people fighting IS militants.
