RED SNAKE: Female Kurdish Warriors Take The Fight To ISIS For Sierra/Affinity At Cannes
Inspired by true events, RED SNAKE follows the story of Zara, a young Yazidi woman who is kidnapped and held captive by a ruthless commander. When she finally escapes, she joins a powerful group of female warriors determined to fight back. Although they hail from different backgrounds, the women all share a troubled past that fuels their urge to accomplish one goal: bringing down ISIS.Elsa Keslassy first broke the news at Variety back in January about the film centered on a band or female Kurdish warriors from varying backgrounds.
“I was inspired by all these brave women from different parts of the world who have voluntarily joined the Kurdish resistance against Isis, and how these sisters of combat are rejecting the status of victims and fighting back,” Fourest said.
“It’s a story about the power of women which I think will strike a chord in our society – these female fighters won the last worldwide war for us,”
