26min · Documentary, Short, Biography · 13 October 2015
Nine honorable ladies, descendants of Sephardi Jews in Bulgaria tell about their life and Sephardi traditions in Ladino - the language spoken by Sephardi Jews after they were expelled from Spain in 1492. Today Ladino (or Judeo-Spanish) is a language spoken by few people in the world, and these ladies are probably the only ones, who still speak this language in Bulgaria. In Ladino they share memories of their childhood, youth and the greater part of XX century, which they have witnessed. Beautiful songs, delicious masapan (marzipan in Ladino) and wisdom in a beautiful film about the need to keep living memory.
