In 2013 I produced and directed the documentary "Wanted: the Joseph Esses Story", which tells the story of my Jewish grandfather's escape from Aleppo, Syria in 1950. My film was screened in film festivals worldwide and has gathered many prestigious awards and recognition. Since then I have been fortunate enough to be invited to speak on the topic of Syrian Jewry on several occasions, as well as being asked to write several articles for newspapers and magazines on the subject. This presentation will focus on discovering who you are based on your personal history, how to carry that through the generations and be a voice for those who no longer have one.
