Zalmy lives a double life: by day, he’s the rebbe’s loyal foot soldier, driving a tricked-out “Mitzvah Tank” through NYC with his best friend Shmuel. By night, he sneaks away from his Orthodox community to roller-skate, dance in discos, and listen to rock and roll. But when he befriends a zealous young man eager to be his student, the barrier between Zalmy’s two worlds starts to crack—until he must choose once and for all where he belongs. Overflowing with humor and heart, you won’t want to miss...

Travel restrictions allowed only Muhi’s grandfather to accompany him to Israel, and seven years later, Muhi has grown into a brave and spirited boy. While most of his family is still in Gaza, Muhi has grown up speaking Hebrew and celebrating Jewish holidays with the other kids in his ward. With the help of an Israeli who lost his own son due ...

One show only! 17-year-old Asher has always been the wild troublemaker. It’s hard for him to concentrate in class, and he is compelled by a lot of rage and violence; yet he is also street-wise and endowed with a considerable amount of charm. While his oppressive father sees him as a natural successor to the family’s scaffolding business, Asher finds a different masculine role model in Rami, his new literature teacher. Feeling he can’t take the humiliation his father puts him through anymore, As...

Winner, Special Jury Award, 2018 Sundance Film Festival In 1980, through a series of coincidences, two complete strangers—19-year-olds Robert Shafran and Edward Galland —made the astonishing discovery that they were identical twins. They had been separated at birth, adopted and raised by different families. Even more incredibly, when their story ran in the New York Post, another 19 year-old, David Kellman, realized he was their triplet, adopted to yet another family. After an overwhelmingly jo...
