Screening of

Canadian Premiere

The Istituto Italiano di Cultura and Toronto Jewish Film Festival are pleased to present the Italian documentary LIBYA: THE LAST EXODUS by Ruggero Gabbai.


Libya – The Last Exodus

Italy 2017 | 65 minutes | Italian, Hebrew | Hebrew, English subtitles

Following past tributes to the Jewish communities of Egypt and Rhodes, Ruggero Gabbai presents a moving portrait of the thriving Jewish community that once resided in Libya. From Italian colonization, through foreign domination, and delicate cohabitation with the local Arab population, the film depicts the life of the Jews of Libya, who lived in the country for centuries until the events of 1967, when violent riots forced them to leave and never come back. The film’s protagonists, now mostly residing in Italy and Israel, recall their Libyan life, expressing deep and mixed feelings: melancholy, sadness, longing.
