Los Angeles, CA – –  Trezoros: The Lost Jews of Kastoria Greece will be screening at the Laemmle Music Hall Theater in Los Angeles for one week and five times daily, starting today November 25th through December 1, with the official premiere event on November 29 at 7:20 pm.  A name taken from the Ladino/Judeo Spanish term of endearment mean- ing “Treasures”, “Trezoros” is a documentary that chronicles the untold history and destruction of one of the formerly thriving Sephardic communities in Greece. Screening premieres in London, Cannes, Melbourne, Sydney and New York have received positive reviews to date. Directed by Lawrence Russo, and co-directed and produced by Larry Confino, the film has recently qualified for consideration as an Academy Award nominee.

Trezoros is set in the picturesque town of Kastoria, where Jews and Christians lived in harmony and friendship for over two thousand years. In October 1940, this changed forever with the invasion of Greece by Axis forces. Initially occu- pied by Italy, the Jewish community remained, but after Mussolini fell from power, the Nazis took control of the town, eventually gathering all the residents in a single day, and sent them to concentration camps.

Using never-before-seen archival footage, Trezoros vibrantly brings to life just one of many Jewish communities that had existed in Greece before the end of World War II. The film is a story told by its survivors, with interviews filmed on location in Kastoria, Thessaloniki, Athens, Tsur Moshe, Tel Aviv, Miami, and New York.

Russo co-founded the independent studio The Shooting Gallery (Laws of Gravity, Sling Blade) and directed the Emmy nominated PBS short film series showcasing ShortCuts hosted by Louis CK. Producer/Co-Director, Larry Confino is the Founder of Synapse Productions and Executive Director of ImageRescue, Inc. Based in New York City, Mr. Confino has produced documentaries and commercial projects on a multitude of subjects around the world.

Trezoros is an inspiring story of survival that resonates universally and is of particular interest to Jewish and Greek communities worldwide.
