Letters From Baghdad

Directors: Zeva Oelbaum, Sabine Krayenbühl.
With: Tilda Swinton as the voice of Gertrude Bell. USA/UK/France 2016. 93 mins. English, Arabic with English subtitles.


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 destiny of Iraq after World War I in ways that still reverberate today. More influential than her friend and colleague Lawrence of Arabia, why has she been written out of the history she helped make?
