The Venice Ghetto, 500 Years of Life

The remarkable story of Venice, the oldest ghetto in Europe, is reconstructed in this fascinating documentary told through the eyes of a Jewish teenager. Lorenzo, born and raised in New York, is guided through Jewish Venice, exploring its origins and the eclectic panoply of experiences that have formed its glorious history. As Lorenzo enters a world unknown to him, his youthful curiosity melds with a myriad of stories built over centuries of unmatched cultural richness.
