Baghdad Twist is a visual memoir of one family's life in Iraq before escaping to a new home in Canada in the fall of 1970. Featuring a never-beforeseen collection of archival images, home movies, and family photographs from Baghdad, the film pulls back the curtain on Iraq's once-thriving Jewish community, its perilous final years, and its remarkable ability to find solace in the shadow of fear.
