Following the Peacock

Yezidis_Peacock

A first-hand material film on the Yezidis of Iraq, produced by Dr. Eszter Spat from Central European University of Budapest.

This anthropological documentary introduces the Yezidis, a  little-known religious Kurdîsh minority of Iraq, and follows the tour  of their most sacred object, the Standard of the Peacock through the  settlements of Sinjar Mountain, where the traditional way of life and  customs are undergoing a fast change, due to the political, economic,  and social shifts of the last decades.
