Xueta Island explores the fascinating legacy of the Xuetas (pronounced Chuetas): a unique group of families on the island of Majorca who are believed to be descendants of the island’s Inquisition-era Jewish population. Though they were practicing Catholics, the Xuetas were discriminated against up until the middle of the 20th century, always forced to marry within their subgroup population. Our story follows Dani Rotstein, a Jewish-American expat who moved to the island recently and quickly became fascinated with the story.
The film is one hour long. After the showing, one of the producers will answer questions.
