Narrated by Academy Award®–winning actor Tilda Swinton, LETTERS FROM BAGHDAD tells the extraordinary story of British spy and explorer Gertrude Bell, the most powerful woman in the British Empire in her day. More influential than her colleague T.E. Lawrence (a.k.a. Lawrence of Arabia), she helped create the modern state of Iraq after WWI and established the Iraq Museum. Using never-seen-before archival footage and Bell’s original letters, the film chronicles her journey into the uncharted Arabian desert and the inner sanctum of British colonial power, where they would try to erase her from the history books.

In English and Arabic with English subtitles

A Q&A with director Zeva Oelbaum will follow select screenings.
