LETTERS FROM BAGHDAD

+ Dir. Q&A, Fri 21 Apr
Dir: Sabine Krayenbuhl & Zeva Oelbaum
United Kingdom / United States / France / 2016 / 95mins

Explorer, writer, spy and political powerhouse Gertrude Bell shaped the modern Middle East and became one of the most powerful women in the British Empire in her day.  Letters From Baghdad tells Bell’s dramatic story using her own words (voiced by Tilda Swinton) and those of her contemporaries, excerpted from their intimate letters, private diaries and official documents.

With never-before-seen archive footage of the region, the film chronicle’s her extraordinary journey into both the uncharted Arabian desert and the inner sanctum of British colonial power

The opening night screening on Friday 21st April will be followed by a Q&A with directors Sabine Krayenbühl and Zeva Oelbaum.
