“Screening of film The Looting of Iraq


Elizabeth Simpson is a professor at the Bard Graduate Center in New York. Her film The Looting of Iraq deals with the violence and instability threatening Iraq’s cultural heritage. According to Simpson, “The Iraqis lack the funds, equipment, and personnel to cope with the restoration and maintenance of museums and monuments and the protection of archaeological sites. None of the planned international initiatives can now be carried out inside Iraq.”
