The Deminer

This unit will give the students an insight of how mines are being used in a current conflict, ISIS in
Iraq, and how dangerous the work to clear the mines after the conflict in the area is. In this movie the main character does not have the right technical equipment when clearing the mines and this makes his job even more dangerous.
In this unit the Swedish documentary “The Deminer” from 2017 is the source that ́is being used. The documentary tells the story of Colonel Fakhir in Iraqi Kurdistan. In the documentary ISIS have recently been driven away from the area and the Colonel and his aides are clearing mines and bombs that ISIS have left behind both in the ground and in houses.
