The Price of Sugar

The Price Of Sugar tells the alternately gripping, romantic and heart-wrenching story of Sarith and Mini-Mini as they grow up on the sugar plantations of Suriname in the latter half of the eighteenth century. Where Sarith is the most beautiful woman in the colony, the mulatto Mini-Mini is forever in her shadow, slave to her own half-sister.

    Good film if the intention of tnhr JFF was too show that even our fellow Jews had slaves. But this fact was so extremely suttle that it might have been missed. There were only two or three references to Jewish life. Why was this aspect not even mentioned in any reviews, not even in the JFF summary. So my question is, what is this film doing in this festival?
    Why was the Jewish aspect so underplayed? Did the author have an agenda?
