The documentary film “The Wings of Mosul” accompanies a group of paraglider pilots who, after years of war, terrorism and oppression by the so-called Islamic State in the Iraqi city of Mosul are again pursuing their passion. After a long ban on entertainment, they have rediscovered both their freedom and their beloved sport. Chloé Rochereuil and journalist Hugo Clément portray Captain Muhammad and his friends – and join them on a flight over the Iraqi mountains.
