Description

The attitude used to be “Jews, Muslims, Christians, 'we are all Iraqis.” For over 2500 years, Jews were an integral community in Iraq. However, over the last 80 years, Iraq has been depleted of its Jewish community through three significant waves, leaving an estimated 5 remaining Jews as of 2013. Director Fiona Murphy follows one British Iraqi Jew on his quest to revive the Jewish presence in Northern Iraq, and brings us face-to-face with a host of Iraqi Jews from around the world who remember their ancient homeland fondly.
