Light in my soul / Luz en mi alma

Light in My Soul/La luz en mi alma is a visually stunning and emotionally riveting new drama created from the actual words and life stories of New Mexican conversos or crypto-Jews who trace their journeys of faith and identity to the diaspora ignited by the Inquisition. Their stories comprise a wide range of faith journeys and experiences. Some have discovered Jewish roots but remain devoutly Catholic; others have returned to join synagogues and embrace their newly re-discovered faith, a decision provoking skepticism and outright rejection by their families and  society. Still others come from families who practiced Judaism in secret for hundreds of years. What binds the people we interviewed is a deep love of New Mexico and a lasting desire to practice their faith freely and openly without fear.
