More about this captivating documentary film by Sabine Krayenbühl and Zeva Oelbaum:
Voiced by Tilda Swinton, 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?
We hope you will join us in celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8. Plan to bring your friends to Pickford Film Center for this special evening.
