Mosul screening and director Q&A — live tweets

Reading time: 17 minutes and 22 seconds

On Wednesday evening, Directors UK members came to our Covent Garden offices for a special screening of Mosul, followed by a Q&A with directors Olivier Sarbil and James Jones, moderated by Olly Lambert.

The discussion ranged from the type of kit you need for filming in such adverse conditions, the aesthetic approach to shooting war, and the challenges of building a narrative from whatever footage the difficult conditions allow.

Olivier Sarbil is an award winning documentary filmmaker. In the last decade, he has covered most major conflicts and social issues. 

James Jones is an Emmy-winning documentary filmmaker. His credits include Unarmed Black Male, Saudia Arabia Uncovered and Children of the Gaza War

Olly Lambert is an award-winning documentary director. His credits include Abused: The Untold Story and Ben: Diary of a Heroin Addict.
