Remember Baghdad: Iraq’s Last Jews Tell the Story of Their Country
We have a screening of Fiona Murphy’s captivating documentary Remember Baghdad. Released in 2017, the film follows five Jewish families as they remember a time in Baghdad before war and instability. One of those contributors is Iraqi Jewish businessman Edwin Shuker, who will join us in interview before the screening.
The film is free to watch but will be available for 24 hours only.
