Description
Unorthodox is just that: an unprecedented look at the explorations of three American Modern Orthodox teenagers who spend a post-high school year studying in yeshiva in Israel. They couldn’t be more different — an intellectually gifted young woman questioning her commitment to Orthodox practice, a talented musician conflicted between his religion and his music, and a half-Dominican "bad boy" prepared to party. Filmmakers Nadja Oertelt, from a secular family, and Anna Wexler, raised in a Modern Orthodox family and whose story is part of the film, met as undergrads at MIT.
