EDINBURG — Director and recipient of the Engaged Scholar Award for Creative Works, Jillian Glantz’s documentary, “Remember My Soul,” will be screened at the Museum of South Texas History on Dec. 1.
Screened at San Antonio Film Festival and CineSol Film Festival, “Remember My Soul” uncovers the history of Sephardic Jews in South Texas and explores their contributions to regional customs and culture, and how it helped shape the identity of people in the borderlands.
