Storyline

Based on a true story, Braids tells the tale of So'ad, a fourteen-year-old Jewish girl imprisoned by the Iraqi government in 1947 for her participation in the Zionist movement. The film illuminates a complex and sensitive period of Jewish life in Iraq when Jews felt their security threatened as anti-semitism surfaced with the growth of Zionism. Jailed for three years, So'ad joined other political prisoners in a campaign of disobedience until Iraq opened its gates in 1950 and allowed Jews to emigrate to Israel. This feature film holds strong appeal for those interested in Sephardic culture. Written by National Center for Jewish Film
