In Conversation with Carol Isaacs for Iraq Solidarity News

ISN: Music is a feature in The Wolf of Baghdad and plays a distinctive role throughout the story, can you please explain why?

CAROL: Music can be incredibly powerful, eliciting emotions from deep within the listener and performer. It is also the reason I decided to turn the book into a semi-animated film with its own soundtrack.

As the book is wordless the music chosen to accompany the images have very specific purposes, they all play their part in telling the story of our community using religious prayers, traditional folk tunes and popular Iraqi songs.
