Sands Films Cinema Club: Letters from Baghdad

Letters from Baghdad –Film  – Dir. Zeva Oelbaum and Sabien Krayenbühl-

The films will be introduced by the directors: and they will stay for a Q&A after the screening


The interviews featuring in this film have been staged and filmed at Sands Films: We are very proud and happy to welcome the filmmakers for this special preview ahead of the theatrical release of the film on Friday 21st.

Letters from Baghdad tells the extraordinary and dramatic story of Gertrude Bell, the most powerful woman in the British Empire in her day. 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?

SABINE KRAYENBÜHL  Sabine Krayenbühl is an award winning editor with over 20 theatrical documentaries and narrative features to her credit, many of which have premiered at prestigious festivals around the world. Her work includes Oscar and Independent Spirit Award nominated My Architect for which she received an American Cinema Editors (ACE) Eddie Award nomination. Other credits include Mad Hot Ballroom, one of the top twenty highest grossing documentaries, The Bridge produced by IFC, Picasso and Braque go to the Movies, produced by Martin Scorsese, Virgin Tales, Ahead of Time, Jennifer Fox’s Emmy nominated My Reincarnation, Salinger on which she consulted and most recently Eric Steel’s Kiss the Water, co-produced by BBC Films. Krayenbühl has a BFA from NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and is a long-term member of New York Women in Film and Television.

ZEVA OELBAUM  Zeva Oelbaum is an award winning producer and photographer.
