A propos
"Le projet, Murmur, est né en 1998 lorsque pour la première fois en tant qu'adulte, j'ai voyagé au lieu de naissance de mes parents au Portugal. Ce voyage était motivé par ma volonté de découvrir l'histoire de ma famille d'origine juive Séfarade portugaise ayant émigré en tant que réfugiés au Canada dans les années soixante."
