Monday , March 14, 2022 – Review ‘The Jews of Corfu ‘
Powerful documentary , both visually and the sound – filmed in an innovative way, combining ambient sound and stories told outdoors with the Mediterranean background – in public spaces, the streets and Corfu synagogue – with an excellent film score – that is especially impressive how it manages to accompany the viewer in scenes of holocaust atrocities. The history of the Corfiot Jews – a mixture of Pugliese (from south Italy) and Romaniote (from Greece) is told in vivid detail from the Middle Ages to today. I watched this fast paced film twice, last premiere weekend, to fully grasp the whole picture.
