Shadow in Baghdad is a documentary film that traces the story of the Jewish community and its disappearance from Baghdad. A young journalist from Baghdad sets out to write about Linda Abdul Aziz (her mother), who escaped Iraq to Israel in the early 70’s and about her father, who decided to stay in Iraq, only later to disappear and his fate remained unknown. Slowly they uncover the tragic end of Linda’s father, as well as that of a whole Jewish community that thrived in Iraq for over 2000 years.
Shir Mnuchin, the fillm maker, will be giving a talk about the film, which has been nominated for the Social Justice Award and the Foreign Film Award in the Santa Barbara Intl. Film Festival this past February. It is also nominated in the Palm Beach International Film Festival in April 2014.
