Streaming Video - 2012

Ali Hassan Al Majeed - the notorious "Chemical Ali" - was a political appointee responsible for Iraq's Kurdistan region when he boasted that he would "take two-thirds of the Kurds and hit them with chemicals until they die." Using mass killings, deportations, and chemical weapons, Chemical Ali crushed insurrections among minority rebels and Shia dissidents on a scale so devastating that it came to be known as the Kurdish Genocide. Coupling eyewitness accounts with survivors' testimonies and rare archival footage, this documentary from Kurdish filmmaker Kawa Akrawi provides a definitive account of Chemical Ali's reign of terror.
