childhood home.

her multiple personalities, lovers mysteriously 

appear one by one as if wanting to keep her from

Trezoros Trailer


One Story Speaks for Many


This deeply moving documentary illuminates the lives of a Sephardic community in Greece whose story speaks for all people who have been displaced and wronged by war and discrimination.

The story is set in the beautiful and idyllic city of Kastoria where Jews and Christians lived in harmony for over two millennia. In October 1940 this would all change after the invasion of Greece by Axis forces. Initially occupied by Italy, the Jewish community remained safe- but after 

Mussolini fell from power the Nazis took control 

of the town, dooming the community that had 

existed since the times of the Roman Empire.


The film uses never-before-seen archival footage, 

vibrantly bringing to life just one of the many 

Jewish communities that had existed before the 

end of World War II. "Trezoros" (Ladino/Judeo Spanish term of endearment meaning "Treasures") is a highly emotional story told by it's survivors, with interviews filmed on location in Kastoria, Thessaloniki, Athens, Tsur Moshe, Tel Aviv, Miami, Los Angeles and New York.


TREASURES will be entered in competition for the 2017 Oscars

Documentary/ 94min/English language/ HD
