American Birthright (2021)
1hr 6min | English
American Birthright is a feature-length documentary that follows an Israeli-American's grapple with religion, love, and identity after her younger sister marries outside the faith. Becky journeys to carve out her identity as an Israeli immigrant in Los Angeles by consulting a handful of Rabbis, religious experts, mentors, and family around her initial question, "should I marry Jewish?". What she finds changes her initial question to "why be Jewish?" & shifts the very course of her life. AB isn't a solely Jewish story — Becky gives an authentic voice to those struggling to fit in, find their purpose and identity, and own their individuality in a world that begs assimilation.
