Ironically, the COVID pandemic has made travel even more important in our lives. Travel is a sort of escape from everyday life. When international travel is out of reach, memories of travel provide an emotional haven that takes us away from the hardships of reality. However, taking a journey through films often boils down to coming back to oneself. 9 Days in Raqqa tells the story of the nine days the director spends in Raqqa, the capital of the Islamic State ravaged by terrorism and civil war, with the city’s young female mayor.
