"Shadow in Baghdad" - Lecture on Iraqi Jewry by Shir Mnuchin with a Sneak Glance of the Film by Duki Dror
This is a presentation by Shir Mnuchin, the daughter of Linda Abdul Aziz. Linda is the protagonist in the film "Shadow in Baghdad," which chronicles the disappearance of the Iraqi Jewish community. The film follows the relationship that develops in 2010-2013 between Linda, an Israeli middle-east reporter who had fled Baghdad in the 1970s, and an Iraqi journalist, identified only as "Mohammed." Together they try to unravel the fate of Linda's father, who disappeared shortly after Linda's mother escaped Iraq in the 1970s. In a broader sense, this film is the untold story of nearly a million refugees from Muslim countries.
At this presentation Shir Mnuchin will speak about her mother's story, show a sneak glance from the film, and answer questions.
Light snacks are provided.
