Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady
DOC NYC, Mill Valley, Philadelphia
A candid look at what happens when individuals try to leave the insular Hasidic community of NYC.
The film is screening as part of DOC NYC’s Short List, for which our program notes read:
Oscar®-nominated directors Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (JESUS CAMP, DETROPIA), recipients of the Robert & Anne Drew Award for Documentary Excellence at this year’s DOC NYC Visionaries Tribute, “have made their most powerful and complex film” (The Hollywood Reporter). Their latest project profiles three members of New York’s Hasidic Jewish community who wish to explore more secular lives. To do so puts them at risk of leaving behind their families and facing hostile opposition. As their stories unfold over several months, the film plays like a suspenseful thriller.
