“Carvalho’s Journey” | National Center for Jewish Film’s Annual Festival

May 5, 2016 Boston $12.00 - $14.00 0

NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE. Q&A with Filmmaker Steve Rivo and Professor Jonathan Sarna. A real-life 19th century American western adventure story about Solomon Nunes Carvalho, an observant Sephardic Jew born in 1815 in Charleston, South Carolina. In 1853, traveling with John Fremont’s 5th Westward Expedition, Carvalho became one of the first photographers to document the sweeping vistas and treacherous terrain of the far American West. Living alongside mountain men, Native Americans and Mormons, Carvalho overcame enormous odds to produce beautiful art: daguerreotypes that became the lens through which the world experienced the West.

“Staggering…breathtaking.” –Wall Street Journal  

“Great story…stunning visuals…a very rare treat.” –Huffington Post  

“A Jewish remake of The Revenant, but the spiritual and cross-cultural odyssey involved in Carvalho’s Journey is more benign and more fruitful, and the result…is no less far-reaching in its implications.” —The Jewish Week

Director: Steve Rivo | USA | 2015 | 85m | English
