Be a part of one of the most surreal documentary’s that take the viewer in and out of emotional rides that range from pure theatrical apathy to teary scenes where the human emotional makeup is tested. The documentary One Of Us shows how human interactions and relations can be the most difficult and how our personalities aren’t what is on the surface, what we are isn’t what we are on the deep inside. We can see from this story that the journey to find oneself is a rabbit hole where we can be lost forever with a shattered identity or find who we really are and what the person you see in the mirror really is. This documentary is amazing for anyone who have personal struggles with their identity. A perfect fit for anyone who wants to see a real-life example of an identity struggle and how their hardships have been overcome.
One of us explores the opaque world of Hasidic Judaism by having a cadre of amazing heroes. Through unique and personal access in the span of 3 years, acclaimed observational filmmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady explore the lives of three courageous those who have recently made a decision to leave the insular ultra-orthodox community at the trouble of most else, including human relationships with their members of the family and–in one case–their personal basic safety. With a hypersensitive and compassionate eyeball, One of Us chronicles the achingly cinematic trip of individuals searching for a personal flexibility that comes only at an extremely high cost. This is sophisticated and frequently explosive subject material, and in analyzing it, the wonderful team of Ewing and Grady tread as carefully as they can, given the constraints they’re under.
