French filmmaker Eva Husson’s Palme d’Or nominee Girls of the Sun, based on a true story that reveals the strange and unexpected turns modern warfare can take, is now available.

Somewhere in Iraqi Kurdistan, Bahar (Golshifteh Farahani, Paterson) commander of the all-female “Girls of the Sun” battalion, is preparing to liberate her hometown from the hands of ISIS extremists, hoping to find her son who is being held hostage. A French journalist, Mathilde (Emmanuelle Bercot, Standing Tall), comes to cover the attack and bear witness to the story of these exceptional warriors. As their lives are turned upside down, the Girls of the Sun find themselves fighting for women, life and liberty.

Husson’s follow-up to her acclaimed 2015 feature directorial debut Bang Gang (A Modern Love Story), the film’s Blu-ray and DVD incarnation include a Q&A with the filmmaker.
