WestportREADS 2018: Westport Cinema Initiative Screening & Discussion of "Letters from Baghdad"

Saturday, Feb 10, 2018 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

See the documentary film, Letters from Baghdad, which tells the story of Gertrude Bell, British spy, explorer and political powerhouse. 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. Why has she been written out of history? (2016, 1h 36m) After the film, a discussion with the directors will be moderated by Westporter Maggie Mudd. 

Tickets, $10 through on Westport Cinema Initiative website.

Note location: Westport Town Hall, 110 Myrtle Avenue, Westport, CT
