Ladino: 500 Years Young

The film follows the rise of Ladino singer, Yasmin Levy, from the moment she discovers she can sing, all the way to international success. As she gets to know herself as singer, Yasmin rediscovers her father, Yitzhak Levy, who died when she was only one. Levy was a revered Ladino singer who, in the face of the decline of his mother tongue in Israel, chose to dedicate his life to recording and documenting the old Ladino songs before they became extinct. On a singing tour in Spain, Yasmin connects with her identity as a Jew whose ancestors were expelled 500 years earlier, as she finds her own destiny.
