Expulsion and Memory
Descendants of the Hidden JewsDVD - 2006
This documentary traces the descendants of Spanish Jews who were forced either to flee or to convert to Catholicism after Queen Isabella's edict of 1492. Many of these Jews had to practice their religion in secret, passing their furtively-recalled customs down through the generations. Exploring the history and culture of these 'conversos,' the film celebrates an enduring spiritual legacy which has survived centuries of persecution.
