Portuguese from Soho (Ana Ventura Miranda, 2016)

It’s pretty much forgotten now, but New York once housed a close-knit Portuguese community with about 700 families clustered in SoHo. (Even at its height, the Portuguese were overshadowed by the nearby Italians.) Filmmaker Ana Ventura Miranda discovered the remains of the enclave in 2006, when she rented an apartment from a 93-year old woman named Maria Oliveira and discovered a wine press in the basement. Miranda’s hour-long documentary was put out by Arte Institute, a New York institute that promotes contemporary Portuguese culture.
