‘Ji bo Azadiye’ (‘The End Will Be Spectacular’) is a movie dedicated to two guerrillas, Rûbar Şervan and Cîhan Sever, who died in Rojava. It is being screened across Europe. Directed by Kurdish journalist Ersin Çelik, the movie focuses on the nature of resistance in the Sur district of Diyarbakir (Amed).
Two characters, Khaki and private Shervan, who actually participated in the resistance of Sur, play themselves in the movie. Most of the actors in the movie, indeed, are young people who have participated in the war against ISIS.
The film was produced by Rojava Film Commune, which was established in Rojava in 2015. It has produced several shorts and documentaries through the lens of the people living and engaged in resistance in Rojava.
Due to the pandemic and related lockdowns in recent months, the movie’s screening had to be delayed. ‘Ji bo Azadiye’, however, is scheduled to shortly be screened in Germany, the United Kingdom and Switzerland. The movie will also be screened in both Rojava and Mexmûr camp in September. Mexmûr (Makhmour) is located in the triangle between Mosul, Kerkûk and Hewler in Northern Iraq/South Kurdistan.
