This screening is the UK premiere of Mogadishu Solider and is followed by a Q&A with director Torstein Grude, hosted by writer and film programmer Nadia Denton.
Torstein Grude places the camera in the hands of two soldiers. Over the course of a year, they record their lives in Mogadishu, the war-torn Somalian capital where jihadist militants are attempting to take control. Through their eyes we see fights and their shocking aftermath, as well as witnessing the impact of war on people’s everyday lives.
Revealing both the horrific and the mundane aspects of war, the film offers an unsentimental, multifaceted and truly unique insight into the experience of conflict.
