Sephardic Film Festival Exodus. 

A RAI production dedicated to the life of Ada Sereni. Based on the true story of Ada Sereni, who became a leader of the Aliyah Bet, helping the underground Jewish Brigade bring survivors to Palestine in 1945.  She and her husband, Enzo, had moved to Palestine and founded a kibbutz where their three children were born. Enzo was parachuted into Germany to help save Jews, and was captured and sent to Mathausen. Ada, in her search for him, was asked by the Aliyah Bet to become their point person in Italy.  The film shows her travels through Germany and Poland in search of Enzo, and her decision to accept the request of the Aliyah Bet. She mediated the departure of the ships both with the British and Italian Prime Ministers. Post-screening discussion.
