Conventional Sins

Conventional Sins

Conventional sins is a film exposing sexual abuse of children in the ultra-Orthodox community: A decade after he was banished from the Hasidic community he grew up in, Meilech reopens the diary he wrote when he was 15. The diary describes the abuse he went through at the hands of a network of ultra-Orthodox pedophiles. Together with a group of young actors who themselves grew up in the Hasidic community, Meilech attempts to reconstruct parts of the diary and tell his story, which the Hasidic community did everything to silence. Winner of Best Documentary in The Jerusalem Film Festival.

One of the greatest films ever made. Please do not watch it on TV because Shira Clara Winter tuned the editing in such a precise way that simply pausing for a commercial break can literally affect the way your brain processes this masterpiece.
