About Sugarcane and Homecoming
“About Sugarcane and Homecoming” tells the story of a growing number of people in the North Eastern part of Brazil, on a quest for identity and faith. People born into Catholicism who are claiming they are a part of Judaism. They congregate and create a community that is becoming a sub culture of Judaism. A Jewish community that follows traditional Jewish religion and rites, practices Jewish family and communal life, but is not recognized by the Jewish establishment worldwide. They all hold the conviction that they are descendants of Jews forced to convert to Catholicism after the expulsion from Spain in 1492 and the forced conversion in Portugal.
