LETTERS FROM BAGHDAD (2017)

A documentary by SABINE KRAYENBÜHL AND ZEVA OELBAUM. The True Story of Gertrude Bell and Iraq. She was as controversial as the history she made. 

Voiced and executive produced by Academy award-winning actor, Tilda Swinton, Letters from Baghdad tells the extraordinary and dramatic story of Gertrude Bell, the most powerful woman in the British Empire in her day. Bell shaped the destiny of Iraq after World War I in ways that still reverberate today. More influential than her friend and colleague T.E. Lawrence (a.k.a. Lawrence of Arabia), why has she been written out of history?

THE MUSE (2014) Starring Ben Whishaw.

Directed by Tim Walker.

Written by Simone Glover and Mia Bays.

 

“The obsession of an artist for his muse and what becomes of him when she is gone, forms the theme of this visually-stunning short film from fashion photographer, Tim Walker. It draws upon the mythology of the mermaid and the idea that if a man falls in love with such a being, she can grow legs, but this also means that she has the capacity to flee from the man who transformed her.” Aesthetica Short Film Festival.

“A captivating film… a place where time stops and dreaming begins.” I-D

“Provocative and powerful, The Muse is an entrancing film about being entranced.” Vodzilla

“Eloquent voiceover is more like a wash of poetry than a driving feed of information. Graceful and dream-like, this highly accomplished and impactful short will please art-house film lovers and mainstream Whishaw fans alike.” Front Row Reviews
