About the Project

“Shoura” is an online project that features a documentary with animation about an extraordinary town in Iraq trying to come to terms with life after Islamic State. In 2014, some of the most notorious IS militants lived in Shoura and roughly half the men in the town joined up. Now, the region remains deeply divided in the aftermath of IS, but in Shoura, the families of victims of their brutality live side by side with the families of the militants.
