Last Friday, the president of the Jewish Community of Oporto, Gabriel Senderowicz, received Bishop D. Manuel Linda at the Jewish Museum of Oporto to watch the film “1618”. The third feature film produced by the Jewish Community, with the support of the Diocese of Oporto, has been on display in cinemas in Portugal since the 29th of September.
Based on the Inquisition's visit to the city of Porto in 1618, the film has already been shown at major film festivals around the world and has won more than 70 awards, which are displayed in a room at the Jewish Museum.
