Film Fundraiser: On the Banks of the Tigris: the hidden story of Iraqi music
April 17 @ 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Includes Q & A with film makers Marsha Emerman and Majid Shokor.

To find out more, Majid makes a bold journey from his home in Australia to Israel, countries in Europe, and Iraq to meet Iraqi musicians, hear their music and stories, and unite them in a concert celebrating coexistence.”
