In their documentary "One of Us" (2017), acclaimed filmmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady ("Jesus Camp," "Detropia") take a deep and moving look at the lives of three individuals who have chosen to leave the hugely insular world of Hasidic Judaism. Produced over three years, "One of Us" offers unique and intimate access to the lives of all three as they deal not only with questions of their beliefs but also with the consequences of leaving the only community they have ever known. With their trademark sensitivity and keen interest in the nature of faith, Ewing and Grady chronicle these journeys towards personal freedom that comes at a very high cost.

Screening followed by Q&A with directors. 

Co-presented by Footsteps and provided by Netlfix.
