SPECIAL SCREENING INTRODUCED BY THE DIRECTORS
LETTERS FROM BAGHDAD
Dir.: ZEVA OELBAUM and SABINE KRAYENBÜHL
The interviews featuring in this film have been staged and filmed at Sands Films: We are very proud and happy to welcome the filmmakers for this special preview ahead of the theatrical release of the film on Friday 21st.
Letters from Baghdad tells the extraordinary and dramatic story of Gertrude Bell, the most powerful woman in the British Empire in her day. She shaped the modern Middle East after World War I in ways that still reverberate today. More influential than her friend and colleague Lawrence of Arabia, Bell helped draw the borders of Iraq and established the Iraq Museum. Why has she been written out of history?
The films will be introduced by the directors:
