This documentary remembers the extraordinary life of British aristocrat-turned-adventurer Gertrude Bell, who explored the Middle East in the late 19th century, served as a spy during World War I, and helped set the borders of Iraq. Directed by Sabine Krayenbuhl and Zeva Oelbaum, Letters From Baghdad features Oscar-winning actress Tilda Swinton as the voice of Bell. ~ Jack Rodgers
