Remember Baghdad is the untold story of Iraq, an unmissable insight into how the country developed through the eyes of the Jews, Iraq’s first wave of refugees. From picnics on the Tigris, to hangings, imprisonment and escape, moving individual stories take us from past to present unfolding onto the wider story of the Middle East.
In their lives are played out the consequences of the self-serving monarchy imposed by the British, Nazi influence, and the creation of Israel. After 2,600 years living peacefully in the area, in one generation the community vanishes. With vivid testimony, home movies and news archive, we follow the lives of four families, and one man goes back to buy a house in Iraq.
Remember Baghdad is history made personal, revealing the little-known but fascinating back story of how the disintegration began in a country that has exploded into our lives today.
Followed by Q&A with the filmmakers.
This film will be screened in English.
