About the film

Documentary — 2019 — English

Over 500 years after Jews who refused to convert to Catholicism had to flee the Spanish and Portuguese inquisitions, many of their descendants learn about their hitherto unknown Jewish roots for the very first time. Director Joseph Lovett follows members of hidden Jewish families from around the world on their incredible journey of discovery – not only of their own personal history and identity but that of the Jewish community as a whole.

Sponsored by: Jane and James Kessler
