“Dilovan has become the voice of many Kurds and I tried to share the drama of the Kurds with the world – through her.”
DIRECTOR, REBER DOSKY

Winner of the Best Dutch Documentary Award at IDFA 2016, Radio Kobani is a moving documentary about the struggle to rebuild lives after the Syrian border town of Kobani was captured by IS forces in 2014. Filmed over a three-year period, this intimately rendered film follows a 20-year-old Kurdish reporter Dilovan Kiko, who starts a radio station with friends following the liberation of the town. Radio Kobani uses honest interviews with refugees and survivors and often confronting imagery of the carnage wrought by IS forces to weave a compelling portrait of the sense of cautious optimism that can spring from devastation.
