CHILDREN OF THE INQUISITION:
PARTS 1 AND 2
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 6 PM
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 6 PM
Children of the Inquisition re-examines history as it reveals the secrets of the families who were forced to convert or flee during the Spanish and Portuguese Inquisitions (1478-1834). These families’ stories are told by a diverse, multi-racial cast of their contemporary descendants, many of whom are just discovering their once very problematic Jewish roots. Their complex journeys across continents and oceans with ever-changing names and identities is masterfully described in the film by the leading historians of the Sephardic diaspora. These medieval migrations, searching for safe havens, give a fascinating perspective to the forced migrations that so many people face today.

ESTA ES MI CASA: THIS IS MY HOME
MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 18, 10 PM
Starting in the 1930s and continuing for decades, farmers in the Red River Valley of North Dakota and Minnesota depended on Hispanic field workers from Texas and Mexico who arrived to help with the beet fields. Now, one and two generations later, these migrant workers have assimilated and settled in the region. This documentary examines the journey of the Red River Valley’s Hispanic community.
