About Return to Mogadishu
Twenty years after the Battle of Mogadishu, Jeff Struecker, a former Army Ranger from the fight and a key character in the film Black Hawk Down, returns to what is still considered the most dangerous place in the world – the streets of Mogadishu - in order to relive the battle. Filmmakers share Jeff’s first-hand story while driving through the city streets. The film uncovers the emotions experienced by spe- cial operators during the battle, seen as Jeff wrestles with the aftermath of a place that reshaped his personal perspective on life and death.
How I was involved
I worked side by side with the producer, Mary Beth Minnis, to organize four preview screenings of the documentary in Italy. I translated and adjusted the text for the dubbing of the audio into Italian, I directed the actors that dubbed the documentary, and then organized the four screenings in Rome, Florence, Modugno and Bari through a marketing strategy that reached over 500 people with the inpiring story of Jeff Struecker.
