The Ladino Ladies’ Club

Bulgarian filmmakers Georgi Bogdanov and Boris Missirkov produced this award-winning, 26-minute jewel of a documentary film for Centropa. Nine Sephardic women in their 80s and 90s, who had worked as physicians, biochemists, museum curators and opera singers, were meeting every week in the Sofia Jewish community center to sing songs and tell stories—all in Ladino.
