SLEEPING IN RUINS

Horen Ghareeb/Hardi Qadir Ibrahim | 2019 | 69 MINS
Iraq | Subtitles
In 2017, as the last elements of ISIS were being cleared out of Mosul, a documentary team went to work.

In Detail

The result is a harrowing portrait of the devastation in Iraq’s second largest city and of how the ‘brutal fingers’ of war touch ordinary people.

All the more powerful for its discretion, this confident film, sheds light on a significant period of recent history with humanity at its core. It is also a rarity, coming as it does from a cinema little known outside its own country.
