Children of the Inquisition

Directed by Joseph F. Lovett

USA | 120 minutes | 2019

This remarkable film unearths 500 years of hidden history as it looks at what happened to the families forced to convert to Catholicism or flee during the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions through the eyes of their contemporary descendants, many of whom are just discovering their often nuanced Jewish roots. The featured interviewees and storytellers uncover the connections between their families’ journeys and this buried history. The discoveries of these flights to safety share a unique access to a fuller understanding of how their lives were shaped by a perilous history.
