2-Disc Set




Sandi Simcha DuBowski

Release Date:

Oct 21, 2003





Detailed item info

Sandi Simcha Dubowski's illuminating documentary examines two things that do not go well together: homosexuality and the Jewish religion. The filmmakers traveled to New York, Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, London, and Jerusalem to interview men and women who have been rejected by their families because they are gay, and they have been rejected by their religion as well. Many of the gays and lesbians in the film still hide their homosexuality because they fear what might happen if their families and temples find out the truth about their lifestyles; thus, the film includes blurred-out faces, silhouettes, and people photographed at angles that do not reveal their identities. The subjects interviewed include the first openly gay Orthodox rabbi, a married woman with children who fears losing her family if it gets out that she is a lesbian; a man who returns to Jerusalem to face the first rabbi he came out to and to place a prayer in the Wailing Wall; and a Brooklyn man who is desperate to see his elderly father for the first time in twenty years.

"...Sandi Simcha DuBowski latches on to a provocative subject and invests it with a compelling tenderness..."
New York Times - Elvis Mitchell (10/24/2001)

"...Provocative....The film succeeds in shedding revealing light on a group of individuals who are particularly reluctant to face a camera lens..."
Hollywood Reporter - Michael Rechtshaffen (02/26/2002)

"...Wonderful....TREMBLING BEFORE G-D extends a warm embrace to those struggling to reconcile sexual orientation with the teachings of the religion in which they were raised and which they cherish..."
Los Angeles Times - Kevin Thomas (02/20/2002)

"...Compelling....With a number of affecting interviews....The compiled testimony is strong..."
Entertainment Weekly - Lisa Schwarzbaum (11/16/2001)

"...DuBowski's film modestly concentrates on letting voices speak, rather than proposing any solution to the bitter conundrum of his subjects....Their distress is certainly profound..."
Sight and Sound - David Jays (06/01/2003)
