‘An enthralling and moving combination of art and music. It’s magical.’ Claudia Roden, Writer and Cultural Anthropologist
The Wolf of Baghdad is an audio-visual journey through a Jewish family’s memories of their lost Iraqi homeland.
Projections of the graphic memoir will be accompanied by a live band playing the music of Iraq and its Jews, an ancient community that lived there for more than two millennia and which is now found in Israel, the UK and beyond.
Musician/artist/animator Carol Isaacs (member of the London Klezmer Quartet) is accompanied by the band 3yin.
The duration of the film is approx. 45 minutes and will be followed by a Q&A with creator Carol Isaacs, Daniel Jonas (founder of 3yin), and Songlines Editor-in-Chief Simon Broughton.
