Flory's Flame
 | Directed by Curt Fissel | 58 min. Feature Documentary | USA, 2014.

Flory's Flame
weaves the life story of 90-year old U.S. National Heritage Fellow musician Flory Jagoda with her September 2013 Celebration Concert at the US Library of Congress. The combined personal and musical overviews initially transport the viewer to the roots of Spanish Jewish life before the Inquisition, often considered the golden age for this community. The documentary's path continues in the former Yugoslavia, where the traditions were preserved by Flory's musical family for centuries after the expulsion of the Jews from Spain in 1492. The story culminates in the U.S., Flory's home since the end of World War II, where she has brought her heritage to international audiences through her highly acclaimed musical compositions and performances.
