Mission Statement

Our mission is to preserve the Sephardic history and culture for future generations through the production, distribution and exhibition of audio-visual pieces, theatrical feature films, TV series, documentaries, and videos, portraying the Sephardic history before and after their expulsion from Spain in the 15th century. How they departed and how they preserved their customs, traditions and language for more than 500 years. Also, their contribution to art, diplomacy, literature, medicine, music, trading, etc., to their new home countries.

Description

We are developing a documentary TV series that will portray the World’s history and the most significant events that led the Sephardic community expulsion from Spain in 1492 and their journey to foreign lands searching for a new home. It will start at the end of the 13th century and it will travel to the present time across 8 countries showing how they departed and how they preserved their customs, traditions and language for more than 500 years. The objective is to create an audio-visual piece that will collect all the information scattered in books from different authors and scholars, archives, stories transmitted by oral tradition and many other sources and broadcast it in every media available to preserve the history of the Sephardic for future generations.
