About Children of the Inquisition

Children of the Inquisition, a remarkable reconsideration of history and identity, takes us on a 500-year trek across continents, oceans, and political landscapes when intense religious persecutions forced people to convert, flee, and hide in order to survive.

The film follows a diverse international cast as they search to discover what happened to their Spanish and Portuguese ancestors as they were pressured to convert to Catholicism or flee during the Inquisition.

The film follows more “openly Catholic and inwardly Jewish” families from Portugal to Brazil and the Caribbean to the United States and from Spain and Portugal to Mexico to the American Southwest.

The film’s revelation of these treacherous journeys and conflicting identities leaves audiences questioning their assumptions about their own family histories and identities. During today’s unprecedented social, ethnic, and racial divisiveness, “Children of the Inquisition” breaks down barriers between people and re-establishes the history we share.

Special thanks to the Jewish Federation of New Mexico for helping to make this possible.

About Staff

They call me "NewsHound IV," because I'm a clever Finnegan, sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was a rescue pup and glad to be on the scent!
