The film had a great kick-off event at a sold-out screening for 400 people at the Skirball Cultural Center as part of the Latino Film Series. The film and screening were highlighted in an article in the Los Angeles Times. The response from the audience was heart warming and encouraging.
Raquel: a marked woman is a fascinating documentary and window on shameful and largely unknown episode in Jewish history in the Americas. Böhm’s look at human trafficking is an engaging film, which is sadly as relevant today as the time depicted in the film. More than just a story of one woman’s struggle for justice Raquel brings to life the history of the Jews in Buenos Aires in an a completely new way. — Jordan Peimer, VP and Director of Programs at the Skirball
