A real life 19th century American western adventure story, Carvalho's Journey tells the extraordinary story of Solomon Nunes Carvalho (1815-1897), an observant Sephardic Jew born in Charleston, South Carolina, and his life as a groundbreaking photographer, artist, and pioneer in American history.  A post-screening discussion will feature filmmaker Steve Rivo and distinguished historians on Sephardi American history.
