Santa Fe begins where Corti's 1982 film God Does Not Believe In Us Anymore leaves off. In 1940, a ship arrives in New York harbor filled with exhausted Jewish immigrants desperate to begin a new life. Freddy struggles to find work, learn English, and overcome his piercing alienation. His world of refugee acquaintances includes the depressed daughter of a poet/delicatessen owner, an aging surgeon who cannot find work, and a lovable charlatan photographer. A totally absorbing picture, which examines with complete assurance the hopes, doubts, and memories of immigrants who have no place to call home. Corti's trilogy continues with Welcome In Vienna.
