Joe Lovett discusses his inspiration for his new transmedia project Children of the Inquisition, about the effects of the forced conversions and expulsions of the Jews from Spain in 1492 and later in Portugal. The project follows present-day descendants of Jews who converted to Catholicism or hid their religion during the Inquisition as they discover their complex, often buried Jewish identities. Children of the Inquisition consists of a documentary film, an interactive, immersive website, and an educational board game.
