The coming of ISIS has been dealt with through various
ideological responses throughout the world. One of these, in Iraqi
Kurdistan, is the resurrection of an ancient, pre-Islamic religion, of
Zoroastrianism. In what some Kurds call the ‘preservation’ of their
culture and a return to their ethnic roots, this documentary will
explore the questions and accusations surrounding the rise of this
ancient religion and it’s true purpose and place in Kurdish society.
Born in 1963 in north of Iran. Since the age of 14, I have been involved in political activities. For this reason I was arrested and put in prison twice at the age 16 and 17 by the Islamic regime of Iran. After that I was forced to leave Iran. I stayed in the Kurdish mountains for almost 15 years. In 1995 I migrated to Australia as refugee through the United Nations program for settlement. Since then I have lived in Australia.
