While not exactly uncharted documentary territory, the Iraq conflict is thought-provokingly portrayed in “Mosul,” an up-close-and-personal examination of recent events that puts a human face on a region that remains vulnerable as a result of clashing ideologies.
The liberation of Mosul, one neighborhood at a time, from the grip of ISIS is seen through the eyes of Iraqi journalist Ali Maula who was embedded with a militia group during the conflict.
Dan Gabriel’s first feature adroitly traces the region’s history of instability via compelling characters and startling images.
“Mosul” is currently playing in Beverly Hills, California at the Laemmle Music Hall.
