Films

You might consider the Brazilian film, O judeu (The Jew), dir. Jom Tob Azulay (1996), which is based on the historical case of the Brazilian-born intellectual and playwright Antônio José da Silva (1705-1739), accused as a Judaizer and who was put to death by the Inquisition of Portugal.  Note, however, that the film focuses less on Latin America/Brazil than it does on the political and ideological struggles within the kingdom of Portugal, especially t

 

he convoluted relationships between the Inquisition and the monarchy of João V.  It’s also quite graphic (scenes of inquisitorial torture, etc.).
