This week on the Daily Beat: We chat with Anna Wexler, a Ph.D. candidate at MIT and documentary filmmaker here to speak with us about her doc called Unorthodox, which follows three Modern Orthodox Jewish teenagers through a post-high school year in Israel.
Today on the Daily Beat, Friday August 19, 2016: The documentary chronicles Wexler’s own life and also examines the lives of several of her friends, as well as some Orthodox teens who spent a post high-school year studying in Jerusalem, as a great many Americans do.
The film, which was co-directed by Nadja Oertelt, was screened at the States of Mind festival in Israel. This festival, which was held in partnership with the US Embassy in Israel and several US and Israeli organizations, was a multi-platform interdisciplinary media event that included an independent film festival.
