Shtisel Uncovered: The New Haredim
February 10 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PMFree
Yehonatan Indursky is an award-winning writer and director, who has invited us into a world set in the cobblestone labyrinths of haredi Jerusalem where the haredi protagonists are fully formed and fleshed out characters — deeply, radically human.
Shtisel paints the vibrant inner lives of characters who, to those outside of it, occupy a world too often shrouded in stereotype. Yet Shtisel offers us a way in and asks us to listen deeper. There is an underlying current of change, with a new haredi movement emerging and discussion about diversity, access to equal rights and democratic values in Israel today.
