Movie Info

On the barren plains of the Syrian countryside, 30 year-old military commander Arian leads her battalion of women as they fight ISIS. For her, the armed struggle is the only path to emancipation from a deeply patriarchal society. At her side, director Alba Sotorra documents the liberation of the city of Kobane and uncovers the reality of life at the frontline. Wounded by 5 bullets, Arian is forced to deal with the wounds of war, both visible and invisible, and to find new ways to fight for women's freedom.

Inspirational in all the right ways.

December 3, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

[It mixes] unnerving battlefield footage with introspective examinations of the psychological and physical toll suffered by the soldiers.

December 27, 2018 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Without romanticism, Comandante Arian is also an anti-war plea about a battle waged for freedom, and not greed. [Full review in Spanish]
