Developed by Jews who were expelled from Spain and found refuge in other European countries, Ladino is a language that was widely used until the establishment of the state of Israel. In Search of Ladino is a journey that encounters different faces in unexpected places, including a Jaffa club, a market in Tel Aviv, and the streets of Jerusalem while following the traces of traditions, songs, and memories of a bygone Jewish culture.

Restoration produced by: Yad Vashem’s Visual Center (2017)
With the support of The Perlov Family, documenta 14, The Yehoshua Rabinovich Foundation for the Arts - Cinema Project, The Israel Ministry of Culture and the Israel Film Council
