Based on her family’s memories and recollections of their life in Baghdad, the wordless memoir will eventually be shown as an animated slideshow accompanied by a live band (including The Surreal McCoy herself) playing music of Iraqi and Judeo-Arabic origin.

Here she gives us a preview of this incredible and ambitious new work.
