Unorthodox is a feature documentary film that began in 2004, when Anna Wexler and I were undergrads studying neuroscience at MIT. It took us nine years to complete the film, which offers an unprecedented look at the Modern Orthodox Jewish community in America and at the phenomenon of religious transformation after spending time in Israel. The film has been likened to an Orthodox Jewish version of "Devil's Playground," a 2002 documentary that follows several adolescents from the Amish community as they leave (and return to) the faith. Unorthodox, however, offers a more intimate glimpse into a secluded world, as Anna herself grew up in the Modern Orthodox Jewish community and her personal narration frames the film. You can find out more on the film website or on our Kickstarter page. Unorthodox has screened at The Boston Jewish Film Festival, DOCNYC, The Montclair Film Festival, The UK Jewish Film Festival amongst others.
