Tracking Mideast turmoil

FROM REVOLUTION TO CHAOS - The Warm Festival 2015, a series of conferences, film screenings and exhibitions on contemporary conflicts, will be held in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, from Sunday to July 4. Among the exhibitions is ‘‘Discordia,’’ by the American-Spanish photographer Moises Saman, part of a book project on his four years covering the violent transitions in the Middle East. At top, Yazidi women stranded in the Singar Mountains of Iraq waited for a rescue helicopter amid an assault by Islamic State fighters in August 2014.
