addis nocturne

Director: MAXIMOFF Catherine.
Addis Ababa, capital of Ethiopia, XXIst century. In the light of neon or tropical heavens, Addis Nocturne is an ode for a musical treasure with contagious tones which few people know.

New York Sephardic Jewish Film Festival

The Sephardic Film Festival was founded in 1990 by Sephardic House (now American Sephardi Federation/Sephardic House).  It was the first Jewish film festival in New York City.   Its goal:

"to illuminate the scope of the
Sephardic experience; to raise the consciousness of the American Jewish, and non-Jewish, community to a better understanding of Sephardic Jewry; and to present, through the medium of film, the history, literature, poetry, music, dance, customs and traditions of the 

Sephardic world."
