On the Banks of the Tigris
Directed by Marsha Emerman
This film uncovers the nearly erased of Iraqi music, including the legacy of Iraqi Jewish musicians. Majid Shokor searches for the source of the songs he loved hearing as a young boy in Baghdad. The Ba’ath Party purged Iraqi music of its origins, but Majid learns the truth as he travels the world to meet exiled musicians who still sing and play their songs.
