Mandel JCC's Leonard Krieger Cleveland Jewish FilmFest - LeavingTheFold
(Canada, 2008, 52 minutes English/French/Hebrew with subtitles Director: Eric R. Scott)
Sunday, October 18, 10:00am, Cedar Lee Theatre
Tinged with pain and unexpected humor, Leaving the Fold documents the process by which five young adults from the Hasidic enclaves of Montreal, Brooklyn and Jerusalem emerge from a strictly controlled society into a secular world with endless choices: What to wear? What to become? Whom to marry? The answers do not come easily.
Q&A with film director Eric Scott will follow the screening.
