Tacoma Sister Cities 2016 Film Festival presents Farewell, Baghdad

 
920;487;45780e3450b833ab06fdd775ff574d0b464dde31
 
Monday, March 28 beginning at 6:00 p.m. in the Rasmussen Rotunda of the University of Puget Sound. Join us for a cultural program followed by the film at 7:00 p.m. Friends and neighbors are welcome to this not-to-be-missed Israeli movie event.
 
This year’s Israel Sister City film highlights the Baghdad Jewish community. Once with a population of over 130,000, various reports estimate that only between five and eight Jews remain in the city today. “Farewell Baghdad,” or “The Dove Flyer” in Hebrew is based on a novel by Israeli writer Eli Amir, who was born and raised in Iraq. The film gives us a glimpse into the lives of one of the oldest and largest Jewish communities in the Middle East on the eve of the establishment of the State of Israel. The story centers on 17-year-old Kabi Imari, an Iraqi Jewish boy growing up in a Zionist family in Baghdad. Farewell Baghdad depicts the volatile political atmosphere in Iraq which affected the Jewish community in Baghdad after the “Farhud” of June 1941, when Iraqi Jews were attacked and killed and Jewish property was looted. It portrays a Jewish community that embraced the Arab society it was a part of for over 2000 years while maintaining its distinct Jewish identity, traditions and culture.

The 2016 Tacoma Sister Cities Film Festival will be held on Monday evenings from February 1 to April 25.
