      Documentary Film Screening with Director Q&A “Children of the Inquisition” is a fascinating reconsideration of history and identity as it unearths the long-hidden secrets of what happened to the people forced to convert or flee during the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions. Their stories are told through contemporary descendants, many of whom are just now discovering their once problematic Jewish roots. “Children of the Inquisition” takes us on a journey unearthing 500 years of diaspora and hidden history. Through their discoveries of their families' flights to safety, our characters come to understand how their ancestors shaped history and how their perilous history shaped their identities. After 6 years of shooting in 12 cities spanning 4 continents, “Children of the Inquisition” is more than just a film. It's an opportunity to better understand our complex world and identities. At this time of unprecedented divisiveness, “Children of the Inquisition” shows how much commonality we share.
