The Jews and the Longest Kiss in History

Film Showing and Discussion in English as Part of the Film and Reading Series "Between Marrakesh and Mashhad"

Documentary, Great Britain 2011, 60 min, English original version

The longest kiss in history – this refers to the confluence of the Blue and White Nile in Sudan. In this special place, the little-known history of the Jews in Sudan begins in the early19 th century – and this is the story told by the filmmaker Frédérique Cifuentes Morgan in her documentary. Intrigued by an old shop sign reading "Maurice Goldberg," which she discovered by chance in the Sudanese capital Khartoum, she goes in search of traces of Jewish life.
