Directed by Fiona Murphy
Not Rated, 69 minutes, DCP

Five families from the Jewish community look back on a scarcely imaginable time in Baghdad: Iraq was booming, it was pleasure-seeking, and there was inter-communal trust. Iraq was once one of the most diverse places on earth, often more tolerant of its minorities than any European nation. Today, after decades of war and instability, Iraq is a very different place. With intimate interviews, personal viewpoints, extensive personal and news archives as well as footage from Iraq today, the documentary show how the disintegration began in a country that has exploded into our lives today.

The feature will begin at approximately 5:30 p.m. after a screening of the short film El Hara (2017), which follows one man's break with the neighborhood of his youth, the Jewish quarter of Tunis, highlighting how such moments of rupture haunt us.
