Rose voiced young Gertrude Bell in « Letters from Baghdad »
The 60th BFI London Film Festival is underway and it has appeared that Rose is involved in a movie screened this year, « Letters from Baghdad », a documentary about the life of Gertrude Bell directed by Sabine Krayenbühl and Zeva Oelbaum. Bell was a pioneering English writer, archaeologist, diplomat and spy whose travels through the Arabian desert gave her local knowledge unparalleled by her British peers. Recruited by British Military Intelligence after World War I, she played a significant – often unrecognised – role in British imperial policy-making in the Middle East, notably Iraq. (source)
Rose voiced the young Gertrude and Tilda Swinton the old Gertrude.
A first screening was planned yesterday (October 9) and a second one will take place today. You can learn more about the movie here.
