Event Description
SHADOW IN BAGHDAD (Sneak Preview)

Dir. Duki Dror (Israel/France, 2013)
In Arabic and Hebrew with English Subtitles
Documentary
US Premiere (Sneak Preview)


Jews once played a major role in Iraqi society, and this investigative documentary traces their story, and that of the brutal campaign that eventually drove them out from Baghdad.


We follow a young Iraqi journalist who sets out to write about Linda Abdel Aziz Menuhin, who escaped to Israel in the early 70's and whose father, a prominent lawyer, had been kidnapped in Baghdad. The continuous dialog between the two slowly uncovers the tragic end of her father, as well as that of a whole Jewish community that thrived in Iraq for over 2000 years.
