REMEMBER BAGHDAD + PANEL DISCUSSION Dir. Fiona Murphy|

UK, Iraq, Israel 2017 | 69 mins
Seen as a site of ongoing fighting, modern-day Baghdad scarcely resembles the city it once was. New British documentary Remember Baghdad is a fascinating exploration of the rich Jewish life and culture that had flourished in Iraq before the events of the 20th and early 21st centuries dramatically changed the course of the country – and the fate of its Jews. The film features prominent British-Iraqi Jews, including David Dangoor. Their life stories are woven into the history of their fellow Iraqi people, Jews and non-Jews alike.
