Little Survivors is a documentary about Yezidi children in Iraq who were in IS captivity. It is realized in collaboration with Lotte Knaepen.
In the film a few children testify about their period of living as a slave in IS families. They also tell about how they overcame the trauma, one of the methods is through sand play therapy.
Jackleens testimony inspired me for my next video installation in which I will further investigate how children endure extreme circumstances. How it affects their daily life and the unconscious mind.
The surrounding beautiful nature and wild flowers will also play an important role in the installation as a counterpart of the horrific stories.
