Details

Directors Sabine Krayenbühl and Zeva Oelbaum weave together a rich tapestry of archive footage, writings and testimonies for peers (narrated by Tilda Swinton) in their fascinating account of pioneering English writer, archaeologist, diplomat and spy Gertrude Bell. Despite the hugely significant role that Bell played in post World War I British imperial policy-making in the Middle East (particularly Iraq), she has been somewhat unacknowledged in history. Openly critical of colonial practices, she helped shape the destiny of the Middle East in a way that still reverberates today.
