FLORY’S FLAME: A Sephardic Treasure
Flory’s Flame is a biographical documentary which explores the life and career of ninety-year-old Sephardic composer and performer Flory Jagoda. Raised in a musical household in Bosnia and then Croatia, Flory was forced to flee to Italy and then America during World War II. As one of the few remaining survivors of the Holocaust in her family, Flory has made it her life mission to continue her family’s cultural legacy through music, recording five albums and earning a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts in the process.
Q&A with filmmakers Ellen Friedland and Curt Fissel follows the screening.
