Thought provoking film filled with emotion and love
24 October 2017 | by pik923See all my reviews

Well edited that is my first comment. Well edited and constructed as a documentary film. An important story unlike many other stories of insular communities that fear the modern world and how it will affect their flock.

It does not include the young Hasidic man who left and trans into a woman. Perhaps that is a story that deserves its own documentary.

To the courageous men and women who step out of the circle and into the unknown, through their courage, desire, their wanting to let go of something which for them is outdated, I am humbled by your beings.

The most important observation for me of this film which I relate to Israel as a nation, we are a people who came from survivors, be it the European holocaust or the holocaust Jews faced in the Sephardic and Arab countries. Somehow for some reason we survive to carry on our tradition of loving the One God.

And we are a damaged people who continually remember that in each generation we must face potential persecution for our commitment and love of God. We are an amazing people who through our love of God, in however we may express it continue to be on this planet even now with our own country and communities like this Hassidic community.

This is a film that should be screened in all schools around the world - an example of people wanting to live in freedom and yet are always haunted by their desire to love and be Good to God.

Amen - bless you all and to those support groups who help people transition from one world to another.
