Vivienne Roumani-Denn, Director of The Last Jews of Libya chats with Judyth Piazza

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Vivienne Roumani-Denn`s film documents the final decades of a centuries-old Sephardic Jewish community through the lives of the remarkable Roumani family. Based on the recently discovered memoirs of the family`s matriarch, Elise Roumani, as well as interviews with several generations of the Roumani family and a trove of rare archival film and photographs, it is an unforgettable tale.

Narrated by Isabella Rosselini, The Last Jews of Libya  is the story of an ancient community transformed by modern European culture, buffeted by Fascism and Arab nationalism, and ultimately saved through the strength of its Jewish tradition and faith.
