Film Screening: Letters from Baghdad
Letters from Baghdad tells the extraordinary and dramatic story of Gertrude Bell, the most powerful woman in the British Empire in her day. Using stunning, never-seen-before footage of the region, the film chronicles her extraordinary journey into the uncharted Arabian desert and the inner sanctum of British colonial power. 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.
The evening will end with a panel discussion and a drinks reception with canapés.
