Hi Reddit! I’m Daniel Gabriel, former CIA counterterrorism officer (Iraq). I just directed MOSUL, my first feature documentary, about the locals who banded together to defeat ISIS. AMA!
I’m here today to answer your questions about counterrorism efforts against ISIS, making my first feature documentary, and to share the release (today!) of MOSUL's Original Soundtrack from record producer and electronic DJ Photek.
A few quick answers:
- Yes, my job was kind of like the new Jack Ryan series (which is very well researched!). Here's my bio.
- No, the CIA didn’t covertly fund this movie
- Yes, MOSUL is out now: iTunes | Amazon | Vimeo | Google Play
MOSUL (2019) distributed by Gravitas Ventures
The gritty, thrilling story of the local militias and uneasy allies who banded together to liberate Iraq's second-largest city of 1.3 million people from ISIS in 2017. IMDb
Ask me anything!
EDIT: Back at 2pm PT / 5pm ET to answer your questions!
Thanks for the amazing questions today! Be sure to check out the film on iTunes and Amazon (links above). I’ll try to come back and give a few more questions later. Thanks Reddit!
