In the Middle Eastern region of Iraqi Kurdistan, there are currently two million refugees who have been displaced by the terrorist regime, Daesh — better known as ISIS.
A world away, a group of American Veterans struggle in the aftermath of serving in unresolved wars. In an effort to manage that struggle they have decided to pick up where foreign policy has left off. This is the story of Iraqi and Syrian refugees living in the shadow of ISIS, and a band of heroes returning to their former battleground to make a difference.
Follow the journey of Iraq War veteran Richard Campos, Vietnam Veteran Stan Rapada and Gold Star father Kevin Graves as they venture to the front lines of combat to witness the atrocities that ISIS has committed. During their adventure they’ll meet a Catholic nun and a Muslim heart surgeon who will join forces with them as they strive for the betterment of these displaced people. Filmed over a period of three years, on two continents and in four languages, The Longest Road is “a breathtaking achievement in documentary filmmaking” and an “insightful look at the ISIS crisis that we aren’t seeing on the news.”
Since it’s completion the film has premiered on three continents and in multiple venues across the world. It has been an Official Selection in the 23rd Annual San Luis Obispo Film Festival, the 2017 Newport Beach Film Festival, the inaugural Chhatrapati Shivaji International Film Festival in India, the 7th Annual Irvine International Film Festival and the Nevada Women’s International Film Festival in Las Vegas. The film received the Award of Merit from Impact DOCS Awards in La Jolla, California and was recently recognized by the Kurdish Regional Government in Stockholm. In 2017, the filmmakers met in Swedish Parliament to discuss the current situation and to discuss the making of the motion picture. Additional screenings are being planned throughout the rest of 2017.
