The epic drama, based on true events, tells the untold story of Portugal’s Jewish community from their expulsion in 1496 to the present day. Sefarad (2018), directed by film-maker Luís Ismael, closes with some optimism, as Portugal becomes a Jewish hub once again in post-war Europe.
The Director did a brilliant job in conveying the raw emotions that coursed through Portugal not only in the times of the Crypto Jews but during the Nazi regime and through modern times.

A sweeping epic that covers Jewish history in Portugal from the times of the Crypto Jews in 1496—when King Manuel I prohibited the open practice of Judaism—through to the Nazi regime to modern times, Sefarad centers on the life of army captain Arturo de Barros Basto, founder of the Oporto Jewish Community.
