The FPA had the pleasure to co-host the premiere of Olivier Sarbil’s award-winning documentary “Mosul” in Greece.
In a packed room, dozens of members of the FPA and the Frontline Freeline Register, a UK-based international journalists’ association, watched the film which depicts the battle to retake the Iraqi city from ISIS and how thousands of civilians were caught in the crossfire.

In the Q&A that followed, Sarbil and co-director James Jones shared their experiences of working in war zones such as Mosul and discussed the challenges of completing such a fly-on-the-wall documentary.

Following the screening, FPA members had the opportunity to meet members of the Frontline Freeline Register, a new and growing part of the international journalistic community in Athens. They are video-journalists and photographers who have recently moved here from nearby countries in which conditions for independent journalism have deteriorated.
