A feature-length documentary musical film about the songs and traditions of the Spanish Jews

This is a feature-length documentary film about the Sephardim, the descendants of the Jews who were expelled from Spain in 1492 by the Catholic monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella. It pictorially recounts the amazing story of the Spanish Jews-from the time of the Golden Age in Moorish Spain, through the fateful years of the Inquisition and the Expulsion in 1492, and the subsequent dispersion of the Sephardim to centers such as Istanbul, Salonica, and Amsterdam.
