City of Joel

August 4 | 6:00 pm - August 7 | 6:00 pm

Just 50 miles north of New York City, the ultra-Orthodox Satmar sect has built Kiryas Joel as a religious haven where they can be fruitful, multiply and follow the 613 rules of the Talmud. But with some of the highest birth rates in the country, they have been almost too successful. Developers have come up with a plan to double the size of the village to keep up with this growth, but their neighbors fight back because they believe it will harm the environment and tilt the balance of political power. In the tradition of rigorous observational documentaries, the people on all sides of a conflict – from religious zealots to dissidents, are presented.

Please Note: Sales of tickets will stop 2 hours prior to the screening window time. Films can be streamed on any “smart” device: a smart TV, a desktop or laptop computer, a tablet, or even a smart phone. If you have the capacity for phone-to-TV-screen mirroring, that is also an option. Two hours prior to the film screening window you will be sent an email with a unique screening link. For the safety and integrity of our film festival and patrons, you must not forward this link to anyone. The link will only be good during the designated 72 hour screening time.
