The Last Jews of Libya documents the final decades of a centuries-old Sephardic Jewish community through the lives of one remarkable family. At the end of WWII, 36,000 Jews lived in Libya, but not a single one remains today.

Farai Chideya talks with director Vivienne Roumani-Denn about her new documentary.
