Tucson International Jewish Film Festival: Xueta Island Post-Film Program

January 17 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Tucson International Jewish Film Festival: Xueta Island Post-Film Program

2021 / Spain / 60 minutes / English, Catalan, and Spanish with subtitles

In the 1400’s, an isolated group of Jews on Mallorca were forced to convert to Catholicism or be burned alive. Today, their story is sparking a Jewish renaissance across the community. After recently moving to the island, Jewish-American expat Dani Rotstein leads us on a journey of discovery across Mallorca, or Xueta Island. He enthusiastically takes us on an illuminating tour of Mallorca’s medieval Jewish quarter seeking to reconcile the painful past with a vision of a brighter, more inclusive future.

POST-FILM PROGRAM | TUE, JAN 17 AT 7PM VIA ZOOM Dani Rotstein, the film’s producer, protagonist, and co-director, Ofer Laszewicki, co-director, journalist and additional camera, and Felipe Wolokita, co-director, director of photography and editor, will be in conversation with Rabbi Yosef Lopez.

A Zoom link will be sent to all ticket holders approximately 24-hours before the program.

Sponsored by Anne and David Lowe + Diane R. Katz + Harold Loewenheim
