Sat 7 Mar - The Wolf of Baghdad - CAROL ISAACS

The Wolf of Baghdad. Carol Isaacs on stories of the lost Jewish population of Iraq. Carol's graphic memoir of lost homeland (on Myriad Press) is a wordless narrative illuminated by family portraits and testimonies, which comes to life panel by panel as a motion comic with its own musical soundtrack. Music transports her avatar to the old Jewish quarter of Baghdad, which she explores, accompanied by the wolf, a talismanic animal believed to protect from demons but who is unable to prevent devastation from befalling the community.
