New Jersey Jewish Film Festival: The Three of Us

Date: Wednesday, April 10
Time: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm (EDT)

Filmmaker Henya Brodbeker documents her and her husband’s struggle to provide an education and social connections for Ari, their autistic son. When the Haredi Orthodox schools in Bnei-Brak refuse to accept their son, Henya and Arale begin questioning their faith and the choices imposed upon them by their community. Their journey for integration and acceptance takes them into secular Israel, where they discover new challenges – and, possibly, solutions – for their family. Brodbeker’s camera captures the religious and cultural transformation of a family looking for their place in the world.
