For many of us, when we first hear the name Mosul City, we immediately think of the brutal reign of the so-called “Islamic State”, of humanitarian crisis, devastation and slow recovery. However, this film tells the story of Mosul beyond these stereotypes, examining the aftermath of war, the environment of the city and its communal places as well as the once thriving energy of the city and its multi-ethnic inhabitants.
The film won the NETPAC Jury Prize at the 43rd Moscow International Film Festival in April 2021.
