Hamptons Take 2 Film Festival presents: SPOTLIGHT FILM - Letters From Baghdad

95 min, Q/A with Zeva Oelbaum and Sabine Krayenbuhl

DIRECTORS: Zeva Oelbaum, Sabine Krayenbühl
PRODUCER: Zeva Oelbaum
EDITOR: Sabine Krayenbühl
CINEMATOGRAPHERS: Gary Clarke, Petr Hlinomaz

Gertrude Bell, the most powerful woman in the British Empire in her day, shaped the destiny of Iraq after WWI in ways which still reverberate today. She is sometimes called the “female” Lawrence of Arabia. Voiced by Tilda Swinton, the film tells the dramatic story of this British spy, explorer and political powerhouse and takes us into a past that is eerily current.

Founded by Zeva Oelbaum and Sabine Krayenbühl, Between the Rivers Productions produces character driven documentary films that explore extraordinary individuals through the intersection of history, culture and film. Zeva Oelbaum recently produced Ahead of Time, a feature length documentary about centenarian journalist Ruth Gruber which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival before garnering six Best Documentary awards. Sabine Krayenbühl is an award-winning editor with over 20 theatrical documentaries and narrative features to her credit. Her work includes Oscar and Independent Spirit Award nominated My Architect for which she received an American Cinema Editors (ACE) Eddie Award nomination.
