Happy Purim

Ori Gruder 2015

Purim is the happiest day in the Jewish calendar. It commemorates the day when, back in the ancient Persian Empire, the Jewish people were saved from slaughter. It is a time for celebration, sharing joy and giving back to those less fortunate. Ultra-Orthodox Jews are famously as strict about observing the rules of their faith as they are defiant to modernity, yet for this film they let the cameras explore their celebration with enthusiasm. The film follows a diverse cross-section of society, giving us a deep insight into what makes Purim so special to the Jewish community.
