"A delicate masterpiece
charged with cumulative emotional power..."
that hasn't been exposed yet..."
For the first time, the world largest Ultra-Orthodox seminary opens its doors to a camera crew.The Ponevezh Yeshiva, founded in 1943, was the first Yeshiva to be established in Israel. Among the constant prayer and scholarly study of 1,200 students, stand fragile confused young men. The filmmaker, former student of the Yeshiva, captures daily authentic moments of hopes as well as sadness and loneliness in a place where an individual can be swept away by the massive crowd.

"The filmmaker allows his subjects to express themselves in a relaxed way, and it is refreshing to see people on camera who seem natural, in sharp contrast to the often artificial-feeling participants in so-called reality television or many other documentaries. Indursky’s portrait of Ponevezh makes its subjects more human and less remote".
