“One of Us” explores the opaque world of Hasidic Judaism through a cadre of fascinating characters. Through unique and intimate access over the span of three years, acclaimed observational filmmakers Heidi Ewing and Rachel Grady (“Jesus Camp,” “Detropia”) delve into the lives of three brave individuals who have recently made the decision to leave the insular ultra-Orthodox community at the expense of all else, including relationships with their family members and—in one case—their personal safety. With a sensitive and compassionate eye, “One of Us” chronicles the achingly cinematic journey of people in search of a personal freedom that comes only at a very high cost.

Discussion with co-director Heidi Ewing and alum editor JD Marlow to follow via Skype.
