Kolkata, Nov 15: Iraqi filmmaker Adn Osman, who has depicted Islamic State’s (IS) atrocities on women in his latest film “Kingdom Of Ants”, says the Kurdish movie could be a tool to counter terrorism. “For me the most important issue is the human and social aspect but yes of course, it could be an instrument against terrorism,” Osman told the media here on Tuesday at the 22nd Kolkata Intertiol Film Festival. The film is part of the Asian Select (NETPAC Award) competition in the fest. The title denotes instability and the film revolves around a Yazidi girl who is a victim of IS atrocities. “After 11 months of captivity, she gives birth to an illegitimate child whose father is unknown. The girl is then saved by a human trafficker, but her illegitimate daughter causes social problems since no one in the community accepts them,” said Osman. Shot in several locations in Kurdistan region, the film represented Iraq at the 27th Carthage Intertiol Film Festival and was also screened in the Counter-Terrorism Intertiol Cinema forum in Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan.
