Airdate: Stacey Dooley: Face to Face with ISIS

Stacey Dooley is back with a new doco special on VICELAND this Sunday, Face to Face with ISIS.

This screened in the UK in February.

Stacey Dooley is heading back to Iraq, but this time, to come face to face with ISIS. In a journey like never before, Stacey joins Shireen – a 23 year old Yazidi woman who was held as a sex slave for over two years by the so called Islamic State. Shireen managed to escape from the brutal terror group while she was enslaved in Mosul, but many Yazidi women like her haven’t, and remain in ISIS captivity. Shireen is going in search of justice – and she’s taking Stacey with her.

Shireen takes Stacey back to Mosul, the self-declared capital of ISIS in Iraq. She wants to revisit the places where she was held captive, in order to finally draw a line under the past.

Armed with countless unanswered questions, Shireen and Stacey finally have the chance to get answers when they come face to face with a senior ISIS commander in a maximum security facility. He has murdered hundreds of men and raped countless Yazidi women and girls. His frank answers will stay with Shireen and Stacey forever. In a trip fraught with danger and trauma, Stacey asks: can justice ever really be served for women like Shireen?

Sunday, 17 June at 9.30pm on SBS VICELAND.
