Cuba: Beyond the Peal of the Antilles
Directed by Joycelyn Bejar
USA | 71 minutes | 2005
English and Spanish with English subtitles
This compelling documentary chronicles the lives of Cuban Jews who left Cuba in 1960, after having resided there since the early 1900s. The film deals with the political impact that the Castro regime had on these people, their lives and their culture. It also profiles the community still living there — looking at their fight to maintain closeness to their Jewish roots and practice their Judaism, as well as tracing how they arrived in Cuba. A fascinating and fresh portrait of a little-known group in a country fraught with political turmoil.
