"Dance or Die" - These three words are written on the back of Ahmad Joudeh's neck. The tattoo is Ahmad's declaration of war against ISIS, in case it might pick him up. "Dance or Die" is a moving documentary by TV journalist Roozbeh Kaboy about a young Syrian dancer who flees the war and finds a new life in Holland. But the ghosts of the past won't let him go. Awarded the Emmy in the category "Arts Documentary" in 2019, already available on until 2 April 2021.
