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.

As his fledgling community contends with claims of centuries-old secret societies of Jews in their midst, the rise of Nazism and the ever-present dangers of antisemitism in other forms prove a volatile mix.

May 20 screening followed by a conversation with Dara Jeffries, a representative of the Jewish Community of Oporto
