The Wolf of Baghdad at New York Sephardi Film Festival 2020


There is to be a special screening of The Wolf of Baghdad motion comic with a magical soundtrack of Judeo-Arabic and Iraqi music at the New York Sephardi Film Festival 2020.

Carol Isaacs is a musician and, as The Surreal McCoy, a well-known cartoonist published in the New Yorker, Spectator and Sunday Times. The Wolf of Baghdad is her first graphic memoir.

“The Wolf of Baghdad is an amazing achievement, a brilliantly and appropriately mute navigation through the dreamscape of recorded and recovered memory, both haunting and devastatingly haunted.” Martin Rowson

The screening will be held at 19:00, 27 February to mark the closing night of the festival. Tickets start at $48 and can be bought online.

NYSJFF 2020 is organised by the American Sephardi Fedaration and will run from 23 Feb – 2 March 2020. You can see the extensive festival program on their website HERE.
