In Search of Ladino

Israel 1981/2017 | 49 minutes | Hebrew, Ladino | English subtitles

In Search of Ladino follows Ladino speakers, their culture, their memories and hopes for their mother tongue. This unique film is one of the earliest works presenting Ladino-speaking Holocaust survivors in Israel, and it provides rare documentation of their testimonies and songs. Filmmaker David Perlov’s camera glances on the faces of the people, as he listens carefully to their stories and songs. The result is a film that brings the richness and diversity of Ladino culture back to life.
