A sweeping historical epic about hope, faith and humanity. Sefarad tells the story of the Portuguese Dreyfus who was a victim of persecution by the Portuguese state for being Jewish, yet built the Mekor Haim Synagogue, the largest synagogue in the Iberian Peninsula. In 20th Century Portugal, where Judaism has been prohibited for centuries, a military officer converts to the Jewish faith and against all odds and opposition embarks on a selfless mission to bring the Jewish community back to life.
Sefarad is a “sumptuous and absorbing historical drama” “With a sweeping look, Sefarad is a timely film that will make you reflect on the true worth of faith, love, and selfless valor.”
