Bernard-Henri Levy Discusses His Documentary ‘Peshmerga’ at the New York Jewish Film Festival
In 2015, French Jewish philosopher Bernard-Henri Lévy sought to understand the psychology and culture of those embroiled with ISIS in the Middle East. Accompanied by a team of cameramen, Lévy travelled through Iraqi Kurdistan. The Kurdish fighters he encounters share unforgettable stories and show unfailing determination in their fight against jihadi fundamentalism. His journey offers an unprecedented view of a war that rages in our own time, and whose stakes are of global importance.
For its U.S. premiere, Bernard-Henri Lévy discussed his documentary ‘Peshmerga’ after its screening at the New York Jewish Film Festival.
