Letters from Baghdad, directed by Zeva Oelbaum and Sabine Krayenbuhl, 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?

Followed by a presentation from AMAR Foundation.

Screened in English

فلم رسائل من بغداد، اخراج زيفا أولبوم وسابين كرايننبوهل، حيث يروي قصة غير عادية ومثيرة عن جير ترود بيل المعروفة في العراق ب مس بيل، أقوى امرأة في الإمبراطورية البريطانية في حينها. لقد ساهمت في تشكيل الشرق الأوسط الحديث بعد الحرب العالمية الأولى وبطرق مازالت تتكرر الى يومنا هذا. لقد ساهمت في رسم حدود العراق الحديث وكان تأثيرها أكبر من تأثير زميلها المعروف لورنس العرب، كما قامت بتأسيس المتحف العراقي. والفلم أيضا يطرح سؤال لماذا حذفت من التاريخ؟

عرض من مؤسسة عمار، (على ضفاف نهر دجلة)، من اخراج مارشا امرمان، وهو أوديسا موسيقية التي تكشف قصة خفية ومسحت تقريبا من
