CANNES: “When they hear our female voices, they tremble with fear,” says the heroine of “Girls of the Sun,” a feminist war movie that captured the zeitgeist at a Cannes Film Festival dominated by the issue of women’s rights. 

Based on the true story of Iraqi women who took up arms against Daesh after escaping enslavement, a female battalion leads an attack on the extremists while their brothers in arms prefer to wait for US airstrikes.
