Cinema

This epic historical drama recounts the story of the Jews of Portugal from their expulsion in 1496 to this very day. Based on true events, this sweeping period piece sheds light on a small community of “hidden” Jews, first heard of in the 19th century. As the descendants of Portugal’s original Jewish residents, they had lived in complete isolation for generations believing that they were the last Jews on earth. At they finally reconnect with their fellow Jews, and with the arrival of many refugees from Nazi-Occupied Europe, Portugal becomes a vibrant Jewish centre once more.
