One of the two Commanders of the Nineveh SWAT Team, Colonel Rayyan, has been shot by ISIS terrorists three times. They’ve killed two of his brothers, kidnapped a third, killed his brothers-in-law, bombed his Father’s home, and shot his sister at his engagement party. Every one of his Men has a similar story of loss. And yet they haven’t stopped fighting once in 5 years. Director Matthew Michael Carnahan and actors Suhail Dabbach, Adam Bessa talk to us about their intense and rewarding experience on the set of Mosul, here out of competition in Venice 76.

Mosul: When ISIS took their homes, families and city, one group of men fought to take it all back. Based on true events, this is the story of the Nineveh SWAT team, a renegade police unit who waged a guerrilla operation against ISIS in a desperate struggle to save their home city of Mosul.
