The New Rabbi tells the journey of the rabbi David Lazar of the Stockholm Jewish Community and his controversial and non-traditional approaches in unifying modern political issues into traditional views of gender, oppression and sexual orientation. The film tells a story of a lonley man, away from his family in a new community, making enemies and earning admirers – changing the traditional ways and embracing the new world into religious tradition.
The film is currently in production. It started as a university project at the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts but is taking new approaches in financing, trying to achieve our goal of turning the film into a full-length documentary. Content is clos to finished and post production awaits. This is our financing trailer and we ask for you help us in making this important film possible!
The film is directed by Swedish director Irene Lopez (Tempo Award Winner for Pinocchio utan Näsa) and is shot by visionary Director of Cinematography Gabriel Mkrttchian.
