Williamstown: Filmmakers to present documentary


Williams College will present a screening of a work-in-progress documentary about Gertrude Bell titled "Letters from Baghdad" at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 5, at Paresky Auditorium.

A discussion with the film’s directors, Zeva Oelbaum and Sabine Krayenbühl, will follow the screening. The event is free and open to the public.
