REMEMBER BAGHDAD + JOURNEY FROM TUNISIA
CLOSING NIGHT: Thursday, March 15th at 7pm: Tunisia & Iraqi Closing Night
JOURNEY FROM TUNISIA

Directed by Jonathan Maimon

Short Documentary, 30 min, USA, English, Arabic, & Hebrew with English subtitles

NY Premiere



What began as a few simple interviews of his Sephardic grandparents turned into an epic and spell-binding documentary about emigration, immigration, upheaval, disappointment, and adaptation. The film features rare archival footage of the Nazi invasion of Tunisia during World War II, as well as the joyous celebration of its liberation by Allied Forces in May 1943. Journey from Tunisia is a film about the upheaval of centuries-old roots for Jews and their Arab neighbors in North Africa, and the creation of new-old roots in Israel.

Q&A with Filmmaker



In this expertly made documentary, using a unique blend of powerful home movies and photos, alongside public source news footage, we meet several storied Baghdadi Jewish families: the Dallals who import tires, the Khalastchis who sell cars, the Shamashes who are property developers and politicians, and the Dangoors who import Coca-Cola - all working in partnerships with their Muslim Iraqi friends and neighbors. The story of Baghdads last Jewsfrom gaiety to revolutions, community celebrations to persecution and public hangingsopens out onto the wider story of the effectual end of Iraqs Jewish community after 2,500 years.
