Jubanos: The Jews of Cuba
This film is a fascinating and moving portrait of a community that has been largely erased from public view. After the Cuban Revolution in 1961, religion was banned and the Cuban Jewish Community struggled to sustain itself. This is a humbling story of the 1500 Jews who remained in the country despite the difficulties. With exclusive interviews from members of the scattered Jewish community, this documentary explores how the new generation re-learned what so many had previously forgotten. The journey to rediscovering and reviving Jewish life raises questions about faith, sustenance, strength and the future, which the Cuban Jews continue to face today.
