What to watch tonight

A behind the curtain look at life in New York's Hasidic Jewish community

  • DOCUMENTARY One Of Us, Netflix

    From the creators of documentaries like Jesus Camp and The Boys Of Baraka, comes One Of Us, an honest and sometimes harrowing look at what it's like to leave the Hasidic Jewish community. We follow three ex-members, who have left for various reasons ranging from a need for freedom to the  questioning of God's existence. The dark, manipulative side of an otherwise peaceful community is revealed and it makes for distressing watching, particularly in the case of Etty, who may lose custody of her children after seeking a divorce from her violent and controlling husband.
