Called the female Lawrence of Arabia, Gertrude Bell's life as adventurer, diplomat and spy played a leading role in shaping the post-WWI Middle East. This documentary is cleverly framed as if it were being filmed in the 1920s, shortly after Bell's death. "The result is something that feels fresh and modern." (SF Chronicle) In English & Arabic. Subtitled. More at lettersfrombaghdadthemovie.com Cosponsored with the Dept of Near Eastern Studies.
