To use Winston Churchill’s famous words about the Balkans, you can say that the Middle East has more history than you can digest. Now, the wars in the world’s most volatile regions have entered the digital platform: almost all wars now offer a series with the region as the background, from the 1973 Israeli film HBO on Yom Kippur War to the middle of Baghdad, About an Iraqi policeman after the British and American invasion in 2003, to the puzzling Netflix, an American film in Arabic (actually Iraqi dialect), about the war to capture northern Iraqi cities from the Islamic state (ISIS). In the first act, the theoretically good executed several jihadis without blinking an eye. The film is a kind of Black Hawk shot down in Iraq, literally, they won’t be prisoners.

In Iraq and Kurdistan, there is also an interesting French Mini play “no man’s land” (HBO), which depicts the lives of European fanatics joining the Islamic state on the one hand and foreigners joining the international brigade of Kurdish militia on the other. There are a large number of women there, It’s to fight the jihadists. The Tehran TV + series, which tells the story of an Israeli agent, Mossad, in the Iranian capital, may no longer be a current event after the assassination of Iran’s chief nuclear scientist in December. Although Afghanistan is not geographically part of the Middle East, the Norwegian Nobel film series can be included in the program because it is set in the world after the attacks of September 11, 2001. His story begins with the military mission of a Nordic country in Afghanistan.

These series once again demonstrate the ability of TV fiction to drink from now on, while also depicting a portrait of sidewalks and criticism of recent history: on the whole, it can be traced back to the conflicts that have plagued the region since the 1970s, as well as to the portraits of the Olympics The conflict between power and interest swept this part of the world in the 20th century. They also provided an example of the increasing diversity of themes, producers, participants, formats and languages offered by digital platforms.

Directed by Aron chilberman and adapted from Ron Lesham’s play, valley of tears is starred by avif arush, Joey Rieger and Lior Ashkenazi. It begins on the eve of Yom Kippur War. On October 6, 1973, Egyptian and Syrian troops attack Israel. For several days, the Israeli army has found itself in a very dangerous situation. In the tenth episode, he tells the story of a famous tank battle in the Golan Heights, which is the name of the series, but also profoundly depicts Israel. One of the characters claimed that it was at this time that the Hebrew state began to indulge in security and abandon the socialist ideal of collective farms.

A section of the series tells of the great differences between the mizraj Jews, who came to Israel from Arab countries and felt marginalized, while the Askenazi came from Eastern Europe and accused them of privileges. Just as the series takes place, a mizraj movement, the Panther, conveys this feeling through sometimes violent protests. As ana carbajosa, the country’s journalist, explains in her book the tribe of Israel (RBA), “the differences between the Askenazi and the mizraji are still small in terms of gathering the millions of Jews who have settled in Israel’s short history.” All this diversity is contained in the tears of the soldiers, who are surprised by the outbreak of the conflict: in their hearts, it is more a description of Israeli society than a description of war.

In the center of Baghdad, the British series starring Walid zutil, a Palestinian American actor, goes far beyond what the police do. The beginning of the film is like a thriller. An Iraqi police officer is investigating his daughter’s disappearance during the occupation of Baghdad. The tension in the city is perfectly depicted not only physically, but also in the first few months after the end of the war. In the first few months after the end of the war, everything seems to change at any time. In the air. The historical background is the continuous action of the US military, the growing tension with the civilian population, and the survival of those who are liberated from the dictatorship but suddenly fall into an increasingly complex and dangerous situation. The series also depicts corruption and corruption flourishing under occupation.

No one’s land and Mosul tell the continuation of this tragic story. After the invasion disaster, Iraq became a fighting ground for Islamic state fanatics. The territory of the Islamic state attracted thousands of young people from all over the world under the promise of a new caliph, who was not only a murderous regime, but also other regimes, Ready to join the Kurdish guerrillas. What’s most interesting is how these series can bring us closer to distant conflicts only geographically – even in reality – through excellent characters, elaborate works and powerful entertainment.
