Adio Kerida: l’identità sefardita nel viaggio di Ruth Behar

Davide Aliberti


The purpose of this paper is to examine the travel as a way of identity reconstruction and essential feature of Sephardic identity through the analysis of the documentary film by Ruth Behar, Adio Kerida (2002). The anthropologist reconstructs her own identity and of the whole Cuban Sephardic community through the testimonies collected in her travels. From Behar path emerges a new essential feature of the Sephardic identity: the need to travel through several homelands not recognizing any place as home.
