Calling all suffragettes, historians, Arabists and more
Spy, explorer, powerhouse - the extraordinary life and times of Gertrude Bell are told in LETTERS FROM BAGHDAD, from Sun 30 Apr. A contemporary of Lawrence of Arabia, Bell has been largely airbrushed out of the history books. Here she gets the chance to tell her own story in excerpts from her letters read by Tilda Swinton, and the archive footage from the period strongly conjures this exotic time and place. This is a rare treat!
