Adhamiya is a predominantly Sunni district of about 2 square miles in north eastern Baghdad that grew up around the burial site of the venerated 8th century Muslim scholar, Abu Hanifeh. The mosque that bears his name now stands on the site and is not only the centre of life in the neighbourhood but also a place of pilgrimage for the world's Sunni Muslims. Since the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Adhamiya has been the centre of the Iraqi resistance movement in Baghdad. Meeting Resistance was shot almost exclusively in Adhamiya.
