MOSUL AFTER THE WAR
(60 min) France/Iraq
[watch trailer]

Director/Producer: Anne Poiret

Description:

On July 10th 2017, Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq, was liberated from ISIS after nine months of fighting. The most significant urban battle since the Second World War led to freedom for this city of two million from the oppressive hands of the Islamic State, this city where the Caliphate had previously been symbolically proclaimed. For a year, we followed the Iraqis’ efforts to rebuild their city. Through key figures, the director documented the difficulties faced by the population of Mosul, the laxity of the Iraqi administration, the concerns of the international community and the danger of ISIS’ return.
