Be My Spirit Concert, with Zubin Mehta, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and Placido Domingo in the presence of Queen Sophia of Spain, for the Quincentennario celebrations, brought together thousands of people and dignitaries from around the world on a hilltop in Toledo, Spain, joining hands to usher in a new era of peace and co-existence (Lili Fournier, Executive Producer).
A dramatic moment in history was made on March 31, 1992, when His Majesty King Juan Carlos of Spain formally addressed the world leaders of Jewish communities as a gesture of reconciliation.
He repealed the edict of Expulsion of the Jews which had remained on the law books for 500 years! This historic event was followed by the Universal Spiritual Gathering, one of the central events in the re-encounter of the Spanish and Jewish peoples in commemorating the 500 year expulsion of the Jews from Spain.
This kaleidoscope of cultural and artistic events with the Spanish dignitaries and international Jewish Leaders culminated at Sunset with the 2 hour By My Spirit Concert.
Filmed in the presence of Queen Sophia of Spain before a gathering of five thousand people on the hilltop fortress of Toledo, this magical open air concert featured Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Placido Domingo’s voice filled the night with the ancient Hebrew affirmation: “Shema Yisrael!” – Hear O Israel, the Lord Our God, the Lord is One.
Hailed as one of the most significant spiritual events of the decade, the pilgrimage to Toledo and Jerusalem offered a once in a lifetime experience. People from all parts of the world joined hands in an affirmation of humankind’s eternal hope for peace, tolerance, and acceptance.
The Western Wall in Jerusalem was the majestic setting for the closing ceremony, a dramatic musical production of Israeli composer Noam Sheriff “Mechayeh Hametim”, which magnified the triumph of the Jewish spirit. The saying of “Kadish” and the powerful blowing of shofars solemnly brought the momentous experience of the Universal Spiritual gathering to a close.Weeks before the event, two years in the making, the final funding did not come through.
Lili Fournier personally guaranteed a 9 camera mobile unit. Two world events, including the Summer Olympics in Barcelona made equipment and crews a scarce commodity. She also had her own crew on its way overseas to film the event for her Expulsion and Memory documentary. The Spanish Government came through at the final hour. The remarkable By My Spirit Televised Concert special produced for the Spanish Government’s 1992 Quincentennial celebrations, was enjoyed by millions across the European continent and in Israel in the days following the event. Main Broadcasters: Spain, Israel & Europe.
Expulsion and Memory, a documentary about the historic reconciliation of the King of Spain and the President of Israel, filmed in five countries on three continents (Lili Fournier, Executive Producer).
In 1492, with the stroke of a pen, fifteen hundred years of Jewish life in Spain came to an abrupt end. In a Medieval example of ethnic cleansing, the Jews of Spain were given a choice: expulsion or conversion. Half the community left, half converted. Many of the converted, known as Conversos, continued to practice Judaism in secret establishing a way of life that has survived to the present day.
Shot on location in Spain, Portugal, Israel, Canada, and the United States, this documentary tells the story of the Conversos and the memories that still haunt their descendants. Beautifully photographed and edited, the film features a lyrical Spanish/Sephardic soundtrack by some of the world’s leading artists, including Placido Domingo, Zubin Metha and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Through extensive interviews with the children of secret believers, the film captures the modern resurrection of something ethereal: the ghost of a people.
“A beautiful-looking film… an original and informative look at a remarkably rich and universal human story.“
– John Haslett Cuff, The Globe and Mail
“A vibrant and up-to-date examination of the timeless search cfor religious identity.“
– Henry Mietkiewicz, The Toronto Star
