We aim to convey the Hasidim's sense of purpose and meaning, their sense of humor, and their often quite foreign ways--such as the sharp traditional divisions between the roles assigned men and women--while examining how they manage to maintain and adapt their traditions in an urban environment that might seem hostile. The ninety-minute documentary is a vibrant portrait, as Hasidic life is extraordinarily rich musically and visually, with numerous rituals and gatherings that will be accessible to our cameras. The film combines documentary sequences of contemporary American Hasidic life; interviews with Hasidim and others; commentary by scholars; narration; historical sequences that use archival film and photographs; and re-tellings of thematically relevant Hasidic tales.
