Targeting Isis

4 x 52’

Internationally acclaimed war journalist Rudi Vranckx travels to never-before-seen frontlines to better understand the ongoing war on terror. This documentary series of four episodes unravels the deepest and darkest parts on internet and the world of encrypted messaging apps. We meet soldiers who fight in the streets of the fortified strongholds of ISIS, pilots who engage in air strikes but also the cyber analists who dig into ISIS’s propaganda network. The documentary gives a rare and unique insight in Qayyarah Airfield West, the international headquarters for the Battle of Mosul.

Targeting ISIS also tries to understand ISIS, through stories from IS detainees who report about child soldiers trapped in the war machine. One by one these witnesses offer a glimpse into ISIS’s dark heart.
