SHADOW IN BAGHDAD
Israel, 2013, 70’
Director: Duki Dror, Galia Dror

A thrilling cinematic journey from Israel to Baghdad in search of a missing father and a lost community. A young journalist from Baghdad sets out to write about Linda Abdul Aziz, who escaped from Iraq to Israel in the early 1970’s, and about her father, who disappeared shortly thereafter to an unknown fate. As suspicion converts to trust, the two slowly uncover the truth behind Linda’s father’s tragic end as well as that of the Jewish community that had thrived in Iraq for over 2,000 years.
