mother_with_a_gunComing to VOD today, Wednesday, February 1:
MOTHER WITH A GUN

Director:
Jeff Daniels

Premiere:
Antenna Doc 2016

Select Festivals:
DOC NYC, Atlanta Jewish

About:
A portrait of the Jewish Defense League, through the lens of its current, unlikely leader.

I previously wrote about the film for DOC NYC, saying:
Founded by Rabbi Meir Kahane in New York City in 1968, the Jewish Defense League advocates any means necessary to stop antisemitism. Once considered the most active terrorist organization in the United States for its use of armed response and preventative violence, the JDL is currently led by Shelley Rubin. With candor, Daniels’ film charts Rubin’s path to extremism, relaying how an archetypal good Jewish girl defied family and community expectations for love and purpose – at a deep personal cost.
