The wars in the Iraq and neighboring countries have dominated global headlines for many years, but precious little attention has been paid to the incipient nation of Kurdistan and the ongoing struggles of Iraqi Kurds. Although not formally recognized by the international community, the entirety of Kurdistan is home to almost 40 million Kurds. The Kurdish people have been marginalized for almost a century. Stripped of their independence, the Kurds of Iraq finally have the ability to create their own state following the removal of Saddam Hussein.
A new documentary film “The Untold Story of the Gulf Wars” produced by award-winning filmmaker Roger Lindley, shines a spotlight on the immense achievements of the Kurdish people of Iraq and the challenges they must overcome to see their dream of an independent state realized. Lindley interviews key U.S., Kurdish and Middle Eastern officials including General David Petraeus, Governor Mike Huckabee and Dr. Ben Carson. He also has explores the hearts and minds of everyday Kurds who enjoy a democratic, forward thinking, and religiously free culture.
“The Untold Story of the Gulf Wars” is an insightful and powerful examination of one of America’s most important allies in the Middle East, which has already garnered rave review from audiences. Before this film can go into wide distribution, producers must first secure stock footage licensing, rights clearances, and Errors & Omissions Insurance, as well as admission to film festivals and streaming platforms.
To obtain these, the production team will need $25,000, which they intend to raise through their Indiegogo campaign. They are inviting you to help the world learn more about the emerging Kurdistan state and support their struggle, by backing this important project. In return for your generous support, you may get valuable perks like a digital stream of “The Untold Story of the Gulf Wars”, director’s cut digital stream, director’s cut DVD, thank you credit on the film, Steven Mansfield’s book “Miracle of the Kurds”, Associate Producer credit, or Executive Producer credit.
