THE NUNS KADDISH

Directed by Luís Ismael

Narrative Short

Synopsis:

A heart-warming vignette that portrays a true story of interfaith kindness that took place in Porto, Portugal, in 1982, when two Catholic nuns observe a Jewish ritual, raising the spirituality of the two religions to a higher sense of universal brotherhood.

During an unprecedented meeting in Porto, Portugal, in December 2019, the citys Catholic and Jewish communities presented a project to combat anti-Semitism and foster better relations. After the meeting, highlighting THE NUNS KADDISH, Pope Francis wrote to the Jewish community of Porto saying that he, Prays for the members of the community that they may always work together with the Church in a spirit of fraternity for the greater good of all men and wishes of great happiness to the community and all who belong to and guide it.

SEFARAD

Directed by Luís Ismael
Portugal, 2019, 90 min
Narrative Feature
Portuguese with English subtitles
NY Première


Long Synopsis:
This epic and absorbing historical drama recounts the story of the Jews in Portugal since 1496, when King D. Manuel prohibited Judaism. Officially, the Jewish community disappears, although in many villages crypto-Judaism is kept alive. It is not until the end of the Inquisition in the nineteenth century that the Jews slowly begin to return to Portugal. A small community of Ashkenazi Jews settle in Porto, and they are joined by a Portuguese military officer. His mission is to find and bring back the hidden Jews who practice crypto-Judaism. This project, although heroic, does not have the desired outcome, but, years later and five centuries after King Manuels edict led to the mass exodus of the Jewish community, a new law promoted their return to the land they had been forced to forsake. SEFARAD is a timely film that will make you reflect on the true worth of faith, love, and valor.
